Subject: Database Intercept Page
I’ve been asked by the PR Task Force to run this option by you. I believe you have heard me mention this option before. Are you willing/interested in driving home the point that resources are in jeopardy but installing a intercept page when the student accesses a database? The intercept page could look like this:
It would come up after the search but only for a few seconds then the student would continue on with the search. It can be in front of EZProxy or right off your webpage.
An option in place now, and only on the LOUIS EZProxy page, looks like this:
We can share that code with you if you have your own installation of EZProxy.
The intercept page would be in place of #2.
Note: I am only talking about the LOUIS EZProxy. If you have your own you would have to install this.
Please let me know your preference:
1. I am in favor of the Intercept page.
2. I am not in favor of the intercept page.
3. I’ll add the Intercept page or the LOUIS version on my own webpage/ezproxy page.
