Health Sciences Library Moving to EZProxy

We are moving to a new system on August 22, 2011 for off campus access. This follows many months of beta-testing by library staff. The new system is known as EZProxy, and is used by a majority of libraries world-wide who offer off campus access to their patrons.

There are several reasons for us to choose EZProxy, including:

  • ease of maintenance
  • support from parent company OCLC
  • compatibility with single sign-on technologies
  • compatibility with off campus access options built in to citation management programs, such as EndNote and Papers for Mac.

The new service is scheduled to launch on Monday, Aug. 22. A new login page will appear. In terms of how you will log in, there will be two small changes:

  • Instead of entering your name, then campus ID, you will enter your campus ID, then your last name.
  • Enter only your last name, do not include your first name.
  • Screenshot of what the new login page will look like

Please email Jeff Kuntzman, Head of Library IT  if you have questions or comments related to this change.
