Remote Access to Library Resources: Off-Campus Access

Off-Campus access

We use EZproxy to allow for remote access to licensed resources for current faculty, staff and students. From off-campus you will need to login with your BC Username & Password.  You can either use links on the BC Libraries' website, which include the BC proxy in the URLs (http://proxy.bc.edu/login?url=) or you can connect to Eagle VPN for remote access, or use these tools to create proxied links.

Proxy Bookmarklet

This bookmarklet, when clicked from the bookmarks bar, catches the active window's URL, prepends the BC Libraries proxy URL to it, and then reloads the page.

Login via BC 

Drag this link to your bookmarks bar

For Internet Explorer right-click and select "Add to favorites..."

URL Proxy prefix creator

Enter a library resource URL that you would like to prepend the BC Library's Proxy service URL upon, e.g. http://www.jstor.org, and then click the "Proxify this URL" button.

The box will display the new, proxied link below. Copy & Paste or click it to open in a new window.

You must be a currently enrolled student, faculty, or staff member to login from off-campus. Enter the first part of your BC username (username@bc.edu). Do not enter "@bc.edu".

A few databases require you to create an individual account.  If you have trouble, let us know. Report the Problem.
