EZProxy for Off Campus Access
Library resources are proxied in order to properly authenticate CU Anschutz students, faculty, and staff. A proxy forces the user (whether off campus or using the campus WiFi) to authenticate as an active CU Anschutz student, faculty, or staff member in order to access library materials. This makes sure only our users have access.
Here is the CU Anschutz Medical Campus Strauss Health Sciences Library's proxy prefix:
From off campus, you may notice a proxy prefix on URLs for licensed resources.
For example, this link to Web of Science: https://proxy.hsl.ucdenver.edu/login?url=https://webofknowledge.com/WOS
Library Link Generator (for proxy.hsl.ucdenver.edu)
Tips for using the link generator:
- You do not need to do this for freely available sites (such as Google) or links that already begin with https://proxy.hsl.ucdenver.edu...
- If you have EZproxy translated addresses like https:// someaddress.com.proxy.hsl.ucdenver.edu... this will fix them
- Always test your links before sharing
