With EZproxy, you can:
EZproxy is easy to set up and maintain. It connects to a wide variety of authentication services (including LDAP, SIP, CAS and Shibboleth). Your users connect to EZproxy, then it connects on their behalf to your library's licensed databases to obtain webpages and sends them back to your users. Once you register the EZproxy server address with your database vendor, the vendor sees the requests as coming from an authorized IP address and therefore permits access.
OCLC offers two versions of EZproxy: a hosted version that OCLC maintains for you and a stand-alone version that your library manages.
- EZproxy hosted service includes all of the hardware and software components needed as well as all back-ups, security certificates, automatic system and software upgrades, defined customization services, and implementation.
- The stand-alone version is available for servers that run Linux or Windows®..
EZproxy access and authentication software allows your library to deliver e-content simply and effectively. EZproxy facilitates a single sign-in to e-content using existing library-issued credentials, such as a library card number and PIN or username and password.
