Library Resources for Faculty: EZProxy/ Off Campus Access

Learn what the library has to offer for faculty!

What is the EZproxy??

The EZproxy allows users to access the Library's online resources off campus. It is the system that enables a user to log in with their NetID and password to access content.

If you want to link to Library resources from your Blackboard page you must make sure the EZproxy URL is included.

Please note some databases like EBSCOhost and ProQuest automatically include the EZproxy URL. You do not need to add the EZproxy to articles from EBSCOhost or ProQuest databases.

EZProxy Example

Not all databases add the EZproxy automatically. E-books, journal articles, and streaming videos may need to have the EZproxy added. See below for an example to help you recognize when to add the EZproxy.

Here is an example of a link that needs to have the EZproxy added:

http://www.fofweb.com/activelink2.asp?ItemID=WE52&iPin=EAHIII047&SingleRecord=True

The EZproxy has been added to the link below (the EZproxy URL is colored in orange to distinguish the difference):

https://caldwell.idm.oclc.org/login?url=http://www.fofweb.com/activelink2.asp?ItemID=WE52&iPin=EAHIII047&SingleRecord=True

Now that this link has the EZproxy added students will be able to access this resource off campus.
