How do I authenticate to EBSCO collections outside of the library network?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Collection Manager
  • Access to EBSCO databases
Answer

There are two ways to handle offsite authentication:

  1. Recognition through EBSCO  - When a patron logs in, they can be recognized as "safe" through the EBSCO systems.
  2. EZproxy - If you have authentication via EZproxy that can be set up to recognize users of the system.
