How do I get help with EZproxy? Contact Library Web Administration https://westernsem.libwizard.com/f/proxyproblem.
Why am I seeing the error message "To allow (some.domainname.com) to be used in a starting point URL, your EZproxy administrator must first authorize the hostname of this URL in the config.txt file"? Sometimes mistakes are made when creating ezproxy urls, or a resource will change its URL. You may either attempt to click the "bypass proxy" link or use the form at https://westernsem.libwizard.com/f/proxyproblem we will fix the problem.
Why do I see "Cookies MUST be ENABLED" message? EZproxy must be able to set a cookie for it to function. The cookie only stays active for the current browser session, and helps you get access to ALL proxied sites.
Why did I see a "EZproxy Usage Limits Exceeded" message when using EZproxy? Systematic downloading of content is strictly prohibited by our license agreements. So that we don't breach these agreements, we have instituted limits on the amount of content which may be downloaded.
Can I make my own links to Library electronic resources using EZproxy? Yes. If our licensing allows a product to be available through the proxy then you may create a link by using this page to build your link.
Can I add EZproxied links to my Canvas page? Yes, just follow the instructions in the FAQ above.
