EZproxy: A New Way to Access Online Resources from Off Campus

The Library now provides EZproxy, a new method for off-campus access to online resources. With EZproxy, UCSF users can access library resources from off the UCSF network by using their MyAccess login. You will not need to log into campus VPN in order to access the Library’s online resources.

EZproxy eliminates issues that currently exist when using web VPN with My NCBI and The New England Journal of Medicine. It will also improve access to library resources on mobile devices.

To use EZproxy for off-campus access, go to the library website and click on any online database, ebook, or journal. You will be prompted for your MyAccess information. Just log in to go to the resource!

The Library also provides an EZproxy bookmarklet – a tool that you save in your browser toolbar. If you go directly to a journal website, rather than through the library website, the bookmarklet allows you to log in and gain access to subscribed content.
