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."
