What is EZproxy?
EZproxy serves as a web proxy server that allows authorized individuals (students, faculty, and staff members) to connect to the university's digital resources from any location across the globe. With the help of EZproxy, users can access these materials in the same way they would on campus, guaranteeing the availability of crucial information whenever needed, be it studying at home, researching at a café, or journeying overseas.
Why use EZproxy?
The university's electronic resources are often restricted to on-campus access as a result of licensing agreements with publishers and content providers. EZproxy helps you access these resources from remote locations by verifying your university credentials and making your request appear to come from an on-campus IP address.
