Information about EZproxy, and instructions for creating bookmarklets.

What is EZproxy?

EZproxy allows UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff to access licensed library resources from off-campus.

To ensure that EZproxy enabled links work for you, make sure your browser is configured to:

  • Allow pop-up windows.
  • Accept third-party cookies.
  • Enable javascript.

When you click on a third-party link that has been configured for EZproxy, you will be prompted to authenticate. You may authenticate via CalNet, or via your PIN / Cal 1 card number.

NOTE: If your browser has been configured to utilize the old Library Proxy Service, you are not required to remove the configuration. However, if you wish to remove the configuration, please visit the instructions to remove the Library Proxy Service from a browser.

When accessing licensed library resources, please remember that you must abide by the Library's conditions of use and licensing restrictions for electronic resources.



  • An EZproxy bookmarklet adds the library's EZproxy prefix to a URL.
  • Use a bookmarklet when you access a licensed library resource from off campus, via a source other than Start your search, Databases A-Z, or OskiCat.
