EZproxy is the recommended way to get subscription Library content from off campus, since most people find it easier to use.
Not starting from the Library website?
Drag this button to your bookmarks toolbar → Reload via EZproxy
NOTE: When going to another journal or source during the same session, you may need to click the bookmarklet again to trigger UCSF access, but you will only have to enter your MyAccess information that first time.
The Steps to use EZproxy outlined above are the same. But, if you need to go directly to a journal rather than through the library's website, you might need the bookmarklet. Mobile installation takes a few more steps, but it's simple to use once you have it.
EZproxy does not replace vpn@UCSF as they serve different purposes. As part of the university IT infrastructure, VPN will continue to support a broad range of academic activities requiring remote connection.
EZproxy, on the other hand, is a service provided by the Library only for remote access to library-licensed content. If you happen to be using VPN Network Connect for another purpose (e.g. connecting to a remote UCSF computer or server) you might also have access to library subscription content, if you are authorized.
