To use EZproxy, you must have the EZproxy software and a license key. You can download the software using the links below. A trial license key is available for a 30-day, no-charge trial period. Submit the EZproxy Trial Request form to request a trial license key. To receive a production license key, order EZproxy as explained above.

NOTE: An OCLC WebService Key (WSKey) is required to run EZproxy 6.0. If you purchased an annual subscription after July 2013, and that subscription is current, you can request a WSKey now. If you purchased a license prior to July 2013, you will need to update to the new annual subscription model. To do this, you can request a quote above, and you will be provided with a quote and information about how to subscribe.

If you already have a current EZproxy subscription, but do not yet have a WSKey, please follow these instructions.

If you are uncertain if your subscription is current, please email orders@oclc.org.
