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?
Numerous electronic resources offered by the university are limited to on-campus usage due to contractual agreements with publishers and content suppliers. EZproxy enables you to connect to these resources from off-campus sites by authenticating your university login and simulating your request as originating from an on-campus IP address.
