Follow the How to use MyLOFT guide. Once you're login into MyLOFT, you will automatically be authenticated to get fulltext Article Download.
  • If you are off-campus with a non-Busitema University IP address, you can login directly into the MyLOFT databases and follow the MyLOFT How to guide to get fulltext article download.
  • Once you're logged on to MyLOFT, Set your Google Scholar preferences so that custom Busitema links show up in your search results – Busitema University Logo will appear on every search result
  • Manually edit the URL of a web resource

If you are on a publisher’s site you can get authenticated via Busitema’s MyLOFT by redirecting the link through the libraries’ proxy server by adding “will add the authentication link here after MyLOFT has been set up=” to the start of the URL:


URL of article/story:
https://www.nature.com/articles/nature04177

Edit the URL to look like this (be sure to keep the initial “https://”): and the authentication link= https://www.nature.com/articles/nature04177
