ebrarySite

ebrarySite specifies configuration information required to use EZproxy to authenticate to ebrary using a single sign-on. In this configuration, EZproxy is not used to proxy access to ebrary. When you create links to ebrary, you will create direct links to ebrary with no references to EZporxy. Instead of proxying access, EZproxy is linked with ebrary to handle user authentication when a user performs an action that requires an ebrary account, such as authenticating remote access or accessing a bookshelf.

Configuring EZproxy and ebrary to use single sign-on must be coordinated with ebrary technical support to make corresponding changes to your ebrary account. When ready to begin, contact ebrary support for assistance.

ebrarySite is a repeatable position-dependent config.txt directive.
