What is EZproxy?
Operating as a web proxy server, EZproxy provides authorized users—students, faculty, and staff—with the ability to remotely connect to the university's digital resources from any global location. When using EZproxy, you can access these resources in the same way as on-campus access, ensuring that important information is readily available, whether you're studying in your home, carrying out research in a coffee shop, or journeying to foreign destinations.
Why use EZproxy?
Numerous electronic resources offered by the university are limited to on-campus usage due to contractual agreements with publishers and content suppliers. EZproxy enables you to connect to these resources from off-campus sites by authenticating your university login and simulating your request as originating from an on-campus IP address.
