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?
Owing to licensing deals with publishers and content providers, a considerable number of the university's electronic resources are limited to on-campus usage. EZproxy permits off-campus access to these resources by validating your university credentials and giving the impression that your request is originating from an on-campus IP address.
