What is EZproxy?
EZproxy is a web proxy server that enables authorized users (students, faculty, and staff) to remotely access the university's electronic resources from anywhere in the world. With EZproxy, you can access these resources just as you would on-campus, ensuring that you have the information you need at your fingertips, whether you're studying at home, conducting research in a coffee shop, or traveling abroad.
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.
