Accessing Library E-resources

As was announced in our Information Services Fall 2015 Update, we are changing our authentication method for library e-resources to eliminate the need for our off campus users to download a VPN client.  This initiative takes advantage of Trinity’s new Shibboleth authentication server, a product called EZProxy, and a rewrite of our local web links to provide a smoother transition from our library discovery systems to the e-resource.

The most noticeable change is that many of our web links now have “ezproxy.trincoll.edu” in their address.  The first time you click on one of these resources you will be asked to login to the College’s new Shibboleth authentication server and then passed onto the resource.    If you allow your web browser to store cookies, you will only need to login once per session.
