*Please indicate your invoicing preference.


PLEASE NOTE: This will be the server name / URL for logging in and for EZproxy access. The server name will be inst.idm.oclc.org, where inst will be replaced by your selected server name (for example: ohiostate.idm.oclc.org). If your server name is already in use, your Hosted EZproxy implementation manager will notify you and work with you to obtain another server name. Once you have provided this server name, it cannot be changed.

PLEASE NOTE: These are more than likely the same IP address(es) you have shared with your content providers. During the initial configuration, we will provide you with the IP address of your new hosted EZproxy server. Once you have received this IP address, please be sure to register it with your content providers.

Will you proxy your local users, or do you want local users to access database resources directly?

Does your institution currently use EZproxy?

PLEASE NOTE: This may be someone from your IT department or the person responsible for managing authentication at your institution.

You probably already have an existing system that can authenticate your users. This might be your automation system, an email system, some form of computer accounts on a system, or a database that can be extracted into a text file. What method will be used to authenticate your users for EZproxy? For a complete list of authentication methods, please refer to "Authenticate Users." Please note that not all methods are supported with hosted EZproxy, and they are specified on the website.

If you selected SAML-based authentication, please indicate the type of SAML used.

To which of the following OCLC services do you currently subscribe?

If your institution previously used EZproxy, please e-mail your configuration files (user.txt, config.txt, and any files included with these files) to orders@oclc.org. Please indicate you are sending these files as part of your Hosted EZproxy implementation. For your security, do not e-mail files containing usernames and passwords to OCLC.
