What is EZproxy?
EZproxy functions as a web proxy server that permits authorized individuals, such as students, faculty, and staff, to access the university's electronic resources remotely from any place in the world. By using EZproxy, you can retrieve these resources in a manner identical to on-campus access, guaranteeing that vital information is always within reach, whether you are learning at home, conducting research in a coffee house, or voyaging internationally.
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.
