If the firewall of your workplace internet connection or your ISP is set to block proxy servers, you will get a 'page cannot be displayed' type of error when trying to authenticate into library resources. 

The first thing that you can try is a new browser.  Firefox, Chrome, and Safari are good alternatives to Internet Explorer.  If a new browser does not fix the issue:

Contact the IT department in charge of the firewall of the network you are on and use the following script:

'I am an authorized user of the UNMC network trying to get to library resources through a proxy server.  Could you please allow the proxy server at https://library1.unmc.edu/login through the network's security settings?'
