It can be confusing to connect to the full text or PDF copy of articles and chapters, especially where payment of a subscription is required. This requires your authentication to the publisher as member of the Library that holds the subscription.
The surest path to journal articles is via the Library's Journals A to Z catalogue.
If a subscriber link is not available from the button, use the "Request this item via the Library's Document Delivery Service" link.
Library links incorporate a proxy prefix that tells the publisher you're an authorised user of the SE Library. https://login.smhslibresources.health.wa.gov.au/login?url=
A quick and easy option is to try a Bookmarklet (note the caveat that describes why it may not always work).
Note that browser plug-ins may be blocked from within the WA Health network, but will work on personal desktop computers and laptops outside the network. They don't work on iPads or other tablets as Chrome browser apps don't have the full functionality of a desktop browser.
LibKey Nomad and Kopernio are browser extensions which embed their icons at the article level for a single click link out. Bookmarklet's serve a similar function (to add a Library proxy link to the URL so that your entitlement to full text access is recognised). Browser extensions will also seek open access options.
None of these are 100% - they will work where the Library's subscribed access is via the platform you are on. Where they do not deliver full text, check the Library's Journals A to Z Catalog to see if access may in fact be available from an alternative platform.
To download LibKey Nomad to your Chrome desktop browser, go to the Chrome Web Store and install it to the browser.
Once LibKey Nomad is installed you will be prompted to select a library - select "South and East Metropolitan Health Services Library".
To download Kopernio to your Chrome desktop browser, go to the Chrome Web Store and install it to the browser.
Once Kopernio is installed you will be prompted to select a library - select "South and East Metropolitan Health Services Library".
Resolve a DOI Name

Use this page to make your web links work through EZproxy.
If you create a correct EZproxy URL but the link doesn't change to one with smhslibresources.health.wa.gov.au in the middle, it means Ezproxy does not have a configuration for the resource you are trying to proxy.
To allow https://login.smhslibresources.health.wa.gov.au/login?url= to be used in a starting point URL, your EZproxy administrator must first authorize the hostname of this URL in the ezproxy.cfg file.
In this case you need to send an email to SMHS Library including the links and what you were trying to do so we can add the resource into the EZproxy configuration file.
