By implementing EZproxy hosted, Harper Adams University was able to offer a single sign-in solution for its users, leading to fewer sign-in problems. Library users now use a familiar sign-in process and are able to access the e-resources they want whenever they want them, whether they're on campus or not.

"Hosted EZproxy is such an easy system to set up, configure and use."

Curwen Thomas
Systems Librarian, Harper Adams University
