What is EZproxy?
The web proxy server known as EZproxy allows eligible users—students, faculty, and staff—to gain remote access to the university's online resources from anywhere on the planet. Utilizing EZproxy ensures that you can reach these resources just as easily as if you were on campus, providing you with the information you require at all times, be it while studying at your residence, doing research in a cozy café, or venturing to foreign countries.
Why use EZproxy?
The university's electronic resources are often restricted to on-campus access as a result of licensing agreements with publishers and content providers. EZproxy helps you access these resources from remote locations by verifying your university credentials and making your request appear to come from an on-campus IP address.
