How to Update Zotero to Ensure Access to Liberty's Subscriptions

If you have downloaded the Zotero Connector on your browser, you may see a yellow banner appear a the top of a database that says "Zotero automatically associated [Database] with a previously defined proxy. Future requests to this site will be redirected through" If you encounter this message select "Don't Proxy This Site" on the right side of the screen.

To avoid seeing this banner in the future, you will need to disable/uncheck "Enable proxy redirection" in the Zotero Connector on your browser.

Your Proxies settings should look like the screenshot below:

To access Zotero Connector, right click the Zotero extension icon in your browser and select "Options" or "Manage Extension" etc. until you are able to select "Option." This action should bring you to the page as seen in the two screenshots above where you can edit your "proxies" settings.
