EZProxy Remote Access

EZproxy is server based software provided by the Library that is used to access our online resources and online subscriptions for off campus users. This service is especially useful if you are not using your own computer (off-campus libraries, Internet cafes, etc)

Important FAQ's when using EZproxy

  • Only users who have a secondary (also called phage or dmz ) username and password are able to use EZproxy.
    This password must be created on campus. Visit the Secondary Password Creation and Forgotten Password Site to set a secondary password.
  • you must access the journals, databases and ebooks through the library's web site. The links there have the correct url's that use ezproxy.

If you are not using the library website to access the journals, please see the EZProxy Bookmarklet hack.
