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?
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.
