We use EZproxy to allow for off-campus access to most online resources for current faculty, staff and students. Just login with your BC username & password. 2 ways to access online resources from off-campus are:
- Use links from the library website or Catalog which include the BC proxy (http://proxy.bc.edu/login?url=) or
- Connect to Eagle VPN first, and then connect to the online resource.
Just remember that BC must have the rights to a restricted site for you to access full text. All of our subscribed or purchased resources can be found in our Catalog.
This bookmark, when clicked in the bookmarks bar, catches the URL, prepends the BC Libraries proxy to it, and then reloads the page.
Drag this link to your bookmarks bar
For Internet Explorer right-click and select "Add to favorites..."
