MUL e-resources can be accessed by off-campus students via the Library’s proxy server.

Proxy Server (EZProxy)

All faculty and students are strongly encouraged to access library e-resources through the proxied links found in the library catalog, A to Z lists, and LibGuides. This ensures that they will be able to access resources whether they are on or off campus.

The proxy prefix is http://proxy.lib.miamioh.edu/login?url=

You can add the proxy prefix to any subscribed e-resource link to ensure off-campus access.

Example of a proxied link:

http://proxy.lib.miamioh.edu/login?url=http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.5951/mathteacher.108.5.0376

Proxy Errors

If you identify a proxied link that does not work from off-campus, please notify Jennifer Bazeley.

Re-Direct URLs

Re-direct URLs found in Databases A to Z and the Online Resources A to Z LibGuide that begin with http://www.lib.miamioh.edu/indexes/redirect/ do NOT require the proxy prefix.

These URLs automatically push patrons through proxy authentication without the prefix.

VPN

Please note that the VPN DOES NOT provide off-campus access to library resources; patrons MUST use proxied links.

E-Resource Access for Non-Students

Please note that Alumni, Community, Borrowers, and Affiliated Patrons DO NOT have access to any library e-resources (including Books and More and Articles and More) unless they are on site as a walk-in user. Alumni who join the Alumni Association may get access to a handful of EBSCO databases. The Libraries do not manage these Alumni databases; contact the Alumni Association for questions.
