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?
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.
