Using Access Anywhere
How does Access Anywhere work?
Access Anywhere allows you to access electronic resources when you’re not on campus. After installing Access Anywhere, it will show up as a bookmark in your web browser. To use it, just go to any website you’re trying to access, click the Access Anywhere bookmarklet and it will “show” the website that you’re affiliated with Cornell.
Step 1. If you would like to use Web of Science while off campus, you would navigate to the Web of Science home page.
Step 2. Now you can use the Access Anywhere bookmarklet to “show” Web of Science that you are affiliated with Cornell and gain access to it. Click on the Access Anywhere bookmarklet that is either on your bookmark bar or in your bookmark folder.
Step 3. After clicking on the Access Anywhere bookmarklet, you will be prompted to enter your NetID and password to verify your Cornell affiliation.
Step 4. Web of Science will now recognize you as a member of the current Cornell community, and you will have access to the site.
Step 5. When you find an article you want, you can use the Get it! Cornell button to access the full text.
