UBC Library is beginning the transition to EZproxy as the primary method for authentication to library resources from off campus. Our electronic resource knowledge base is now accessible remotely via a single simple authentication step; there is no need to install software or configure your browser.  Because users connecting from health authorities often experience  significant challenges in authenticating owing to network/workstation security settings, EZproxy access to health sciences resources is available in advance of the full EZproxy implementation, which is expected to take place later this spring. 

We have created a temporary access page, which we hope includes EZproxy links to most of the resources of particular interest to hospital-based users. From this page, click the EZproxy link beside the resource of your choice, and use either your Campus-Wide Login (CWL) or UBC library card barcode/PIN to authenticate. You should need to enter your credentials only once. Instructions for reporting problems are at the right of the web page. If you have questions about this service, or if you would like another resource added to this list, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We expect the EZproxy service to be available to all UBC Library users by May 31, 2010. At that time EZproxy will be fully integrated with all library systems and this temporary access page and list will no longer be necessary. Our old library proxy service will also be decommissioned at this time, so we do recommend hospital-based researchers make the transition to EZproxy soon.
