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?
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.
