Connecting Papers to the Library Proxy

Since the recent change to the Health Sciences Library proxy server, we’ve received numerous connectivity error reports from users of the citation management software Papers. While we are more than happy to assist with issues related to the proxy link, please keep in mind that the library does not provide in-depth support or troubleshooting for Papers. If you would like to use a citation management program that the library does support and troubleshoot for, we recommend switching to EndNote. You can find more information about EndNote here: http://hslibraryguides.ucdenver.edu/endnote/cuanschutz

    2. EXProxy URL: http://proxy.hsl.ucdenver.edu/login?url=%@Step 3
  4. Click “Done” at the bottom.
