What is EZproxy?
EZproxy functions as a web proxy server that permits authorized individuals, such as students, faculty, and staff, to access the university's electronic resources remotely from any place in the world. By using EZproxy, you can retrieve these resources in a manner identical to on-campus access, guaranteeing that vital information is always within reach, whether you are learning at home, conducting research in a coffee house, or voyaging internationally.
Why use EZproxy?
Due to licensing contracts with publishers and content providers, many of the university's electronic resources are only available for on-campus access. EZproxy allows you to access these resources remotely by confirming your university login information and making it seem as though your request is coming from an on-campus IP address.
