What is EZproxy?
The web proxy server known as EZproxy allows eligible users—students, faculty, and staff—to gain remote access to the university's online resources from anywhere on the planet. Utilizing EZproxy ensures that you can reach these resources just as easily as if you were on campus, providing you with the information you require at all times, be it while studying at your residence, doing research in a cozy café, or venturing to foreign countries.
Why use EZproxy?
A significant portion of the university's electronic resources are confined to on-campus access because of license arrangements with publishers and content providers. EZproxy facilitates off-campus access to these resources by validating your university identification and presenting your request as if it were originating from an on-campus IP address.
