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?
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.
