Before posting an EZproxy link on a webpage, you should use the EZproxy Test website to test it. This website is available for you to test Ezproxy links with a forced barcode prompt. This will allow you to test Ezproxy links from on-campus and you will get the same results as a patron who is using the link remotely.
There are two test buttons:
- Test Ezproxy Link – If you use this link when you are on-campus, it will IP authenticate you to the database and access to the database will be direct, not through the EZproxy server.
- Test EZproxy Link with Barcode – If you use this link when you are on-campus or off-campus, it will barcode authenticate you to the database and access to the database will be through the EZproxy server.
Be sure to perform both tests for new database resources. This will ensure that both on-campus and off-campus patrons are able to access your database resource.
