Many of the library databases and other e-resources that we subscribe to allow access only to on-campus computers (i.e., people using non-VPN, Middlebury-based computers). EZproxy allows select Middlebury users to connect to e-resources as if they were on campus.
To access a particular e-resource from off campus (e.g., one of these Library Databases), Middlebury users* can click on its link from anywhere on the libraries website.
When you encounter the login screen, enter your Middlebury username and password to authenticate to the databases.
This service is called EZproxy. It is all you need. Once logged in, you will have access to all our subscription e-resources. You will not need to log in again unless you close your Web browser.
* For remote access to subscription resources, a “Middlebury user” is a current Middlebury student, faculty, or staff member as defined by College administrative records. This is strictly controlled by license agreements with database vendors. Such agreements are standard across higher education institutions.
