Remote Access Solutions

*Most of the Library's electronic resources are available to users from anywhere off campus and from any location, including foreign countries.

To access our resources remotely, use either:

VPN (Virtual Private Network)
The Information Technology departments' VPN (Virtual Private Network) service is the recommended method for remote access. Please call the IT helpdesk at x8390 for the location of the VPN software you will need to download to your computer.


EZproxy Proxy Service
EZproxy is server based software provided by the Library that is used to access our online resources and online subscriptions for off campus users. This service is especially useful if you are not using your own computer (off-campus libraries, Internet cafes, etc)

Important FAQ's when using EZproxy

  • Only users who have a secondary (also called phage or dmz ) username and password are able to use EZproxy.
    This password must be created on campus. Click here to set a secondary password.
  • you must access the journals, databases and ebooks through the library's web site. The links there have the correct url's that use ezproxy.

For solutions to common EZProxy access problems, see the EZproxy FAQ page.
