Off-Campus/Wireless

The Library offers two means of remote access, EZproxy and VPN.

EZproxy

EZproxy requires no configuration.  Off-campus users will be prompted for their AndrewID and password when attempting to access subscription material.  There is no change for on-campus users.

Some databases don’t work with EZproxy.  Please use the VPN method listed below.

Knovel and ThomsonONE don’t work with EZproxy at this time.

If you’re off-campus and have any problems, please report them to ul-ezproxy-support@andrew.cmu.edu.
