If you used to log in via the old proxy be sure to disable it on your browser. Consult Remove the old proxy from a browser tab for instructions.

What is EZproxy?

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

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 use 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.
