Can I add my Proxy URL to the Gale persistent links?

Yes, you can add your EZ-Proxy prefix to persistent URLs created in GaleAdmin.

Note: To address customer feedback that the URLs are too long, Gale implemented a shorter citation link. As part of that, the proxy information has been suppressed from the display of citation and bookmark URLs.

Upon clicking this link, your browser should redirect you to the desired destination that you have entered into GaleAdmin. (Gale has embedded your proxy prefix on the back-end and redirected you to proxy)
