A Chrome extension that automatically redirects webpages to myaccess.utoronto.ca with one-click. Save people’s time! It may take people 5 seconds to 10 seconds to copy and paste myaccess.utoronto.ca in the address bar, but now it is just one click.
For many papers we find online, they are not free or are login-required. For instance, this one from ACM digital library at https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/352871.352887.
However, UofT library mirrors a great number of websites, including ACM digital library, and grants access to the UofT community.
For example, UofT library mirrors this page at https://dl-acm-org.myaccess.library.utoronto.ca/doi/10.1145/352871.352887. If you are a UofT student, you get access to that paper using this link.
And there is a pattern in the URL conversion. This extension does this job for you. You don’t need to convert the URL yourself, all you need is one-click.
The extension is published in Chrome web store: Click here to add it.
