What is EZproxy?
EZproxy is a web proxy server that enables authorized users (students, faculty, and staff) to remotely access the university's electronic resources from anywhere in the world. With EZproxy, you can access these resources just as you would on-campus, ensuring that you have the information you need at your fingertips, whether you're studying at home, conducting research in a coffee shop, or traveling abroad.
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.
