Download Journal Articles from Home without Connecting to VPN

The Library is excited to provide a new tool that allows you to access its subscribed journal articles, eBooks, and databases while teleworking without needing to be on the VPN or on a government-issued computer. Called EZProxy, it is an authentication system designed for library eResources that allows you to be recognized as a Boulder Labs Library user by simply logging into EZProxy with the same credentials as our interlibrary loan system and catalog. NIST staff, EZProxy only applies to your access of IEEE and Proquest eBooks supplied by Boulder Labs Library.

To access proxied content remotely, search content from the catalog on the library homepage and databases page (with links to Web of Science, MGA, Google Scholar, and more). To learn more about EZProxy, view the video and written tutorials on the new Knowledge Base (KB). The Library will be hosting webinars on how to use EZProxy on the following dates/times (Google calendar invites below):
