What is EZproxy?

EZproxy is an effective web proxy server that empowers authorized users, including students, faculty, and staff, to connect remotely to the university's digital resources from any corner of the world. With EZproxy, accessing these resources is as seamless as if you were on campus, ensuring you always have the necessary information at hand, whether you're studying in the comfort of your home, delving into research at a coffee shop, or traversing international borders.

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.
