University library proxy bookmarklet

I've always found it annoying to type proxy.queensu.ca (Queen's University Library) and/or myaccess.library.utoronto.ca (University of Toronto Library) after URLs that I want to access through the library proxy for journal articles. So, I made two bookmarklets that will automatically "proxy" the page that you are viewing.

Queen's Proxy
UofT Proxy


You can install them by simplying saving the links above as a bookmark. You can keep them in your Bookmarks/Favorites menu or you can drag it to your bookmarks toolbar. When installed, you can proxy a page simply by choosing or clicking on the bookmarklet!
