What is EZproxy?
EZproxy, a web proxy server, grants authorized users such as students, faculty, and staff the ability to remotely access the university's electronic resources from any point around the world. With EZproxy, these resources are accessible just as they would be on-campus, ensuring that essential information is constantly at your fingertips, regardless of whether you are studying within your home, performing research in a café, or traveling in other countries.
Why use EZproxy?
Owing to licensing deals with publishers and content providers, a considerable number of the university's electronic resources are limited to on-campus usage. EZproxy permits off-campus access to these resources by validating your university credentials and giving the impression that your request is originating from an on-campus IP address.
