Make iPhone article access easier with a bookmarklet

Posted April 5th, 2010 by Remlee Green

If you’ve ever tried to browse articles on an iPhone, you’ve probably gotten stopped with an error message about insufficient permissions.  There’s an easy way around that!

If the content is available through the MIT Libraries, using an iPhone bookmarklet will allow you to reload the page easily and get you to the article you need. To add the bookmarklet to your iPhone, see instructions for Inserting the Proxy String with an iPhone Bookmarklet.  As long as the MIT Libraries have paid for the content, you’ll be able to log in through Touchstone and get to the information you need.
