Earlier this year, the library changed our proxy server. (The proxy server provides Concordia users with remote access to library content.) Now that we’ve connected all of our systems, our old proxy server will be turned off on August 31. This change affects any library-related permanent URLs that you may use (on webpages, in Blackboard, etc.).

Any permanent URLs that were gathered early this year will most likely be okay, but if you have older permanent URLs, they need to be updated to the new proxy prefix. Here are examples of the differences between the two proxy prefixes.

OLD proxy prefix:

Example of a permanent URL with this old proxy prefix:

NEW proxy prefix:

Example of a permanent URL with this new proxy prefix:

If you don't see the proxy prefix at the beginning of the URL, some databases include it after their domain name. In this example, "" is inserted after ""

If you have any questions about permanent URLs, we have a LibGuide that provides more details, from an introduction to instructions on how to find and use them. Here's a link to the guide:
