What is EZproxy?
Operating as a web proxy server, EZproxy provides authorized users—students, faculty, and staff—with the ability to remotely connect to the university's digital resources from any global location. When using EZproxy, you can access these resources in the same way as on-campus access, ensuring that important information is readily available, whether you're studying in your home, carrying out research in a coffee shop, or journeying to foreign destinations.
Why use EZproxy?
Licensing agreements with publishers and content providers often restrict the university's electronic resources to on-campus access only. EZproxy enables you to access these resources from off-campus locations by verifying your university login details and creating the appearance that your request is coming from an on-campus IP address.
