What is EZproxy?
EZproxy functions as a web proxy server that permits authorized individuals, such as students, faculty, and staff, to access the university's electronic resources remotely from any place in the world. By using EZproxy, you can retrieve these resources in a manner identical to on-campus access, guaranteeing that vital information is always within reach, whether you are learning at home, conducting research in a coffee house, or voyaging internationally.
Why use EZproxy?
Licensing agreements with publishers and content providers often restrict the university's electronic resources to on-campus access only. EZproxy enables you to access these resources from off-campus locations by verifying your university login details and creating the appearance that your request is coming from an on-campus IP address.
