Vendor Database Consortia

EZproxy helps provide users with remote access to Web-based licensed content offered by libraries. It is middleware that authenticates library users against local authentication systems and provides remote access to licensed content based on the user’s authorization. EZproxy is an easy to setup and maintain program. More than 4,000 institutions in over 60 countries have purchased EZproxy software.

OCLC is now able to offer from our Australian technical infrastructure a hosted version of EZproxy. Libraries that subscribe to the EZproxy Hosted version are automatically and seamlessly upgraded with each new release of the service. They also enjoy 24 x 7 x 365 off-site authentication of electronic content with no servers or IT infrastructure required. Pricing is scalable according to the size of your organisation.  Annual maintenance includes OCLC staff configuring authentication to additional vendor content subscriptions or collections, as required.

A standalone option is also available to those libraries interested in managing and supporting a locally installed instance of EZproxy.
