Database of Recorded American Music (DRAM)

Follow these steps in order to provide remote access to DRAM through EZProxy. Please note there are two URLs involved — one within the .cfg file and another for your remote access page.

  • Add this database entry in ezproxy.cfg:

Title DRAMOnline
NeverProxy www.dramonline.org
NeverProxy login.dramonline.org
NeverProxy media.dramonline.org
URL http://proxy.dramonline.org

When creating permanent links to DRAM content, you may wish to create links that will be passed through the proxy login process, so first-time visitors are automatically logged into DRAM. If your institution uses the "port-based" proxy configuration:

1. For remote access to DRAM, you must link to:

http://WWW.YOURPROXY.EDU:2048/login?url=http://proxy.dramonline.org

2. To link directly to an album:

http://WWW.YOURPROXY.EDU:2048/login?url=http://proxy.dramonline.org?target=http://www.dramonline.org/Identifier/80396

Newer versions of EZProxy use "wildcard domains" to make linking a little easier. If your institution uses this configuration:

1. For remote access to DRAM, you must link to:

http://proxy.dramonline.org.YOURPROXY.EDU/

2. To link directly to an album:

http://proxy.dramonline.org.YOURPROXY.EDU/?target=http://www.dramonline.org/Identifier/80396

Innovative Interfaces

1. Add the following hostname to the WAM forward table, make sure it is the only entry and there are no wild-cards:

proxy.dramonline.org

2. Use the following URL to connect:

http://0-proxy.dramonline.org.YOURPROXY.EDU

3. Use the following URL to link directly to an album:

http://0-proxy.dramonline.org.YOURPROXY.EDU/?target=http://www.dramonline.org/Identifier/80396

Generic proxies

Generic proxies are known to work with dramonline. Please use the following guidelines as a starting point for your configuration.

1. The following hosts must be proxied:

proxy.dramonline.org
media.dramonline.org

2. The following hosts must bypass the proxy server:

www.dramonline.org
streaming.dramonline.org
login.dramonline.org

Off campus access must be configured to go through your proxy server. To properly set up session cookies you must go to proxy.dramonline.org first.
