Off-Campus Access (OCA) and Remote Access

Tools and tips for using Library resources when away from campus.

Other Tools

Several browser extensions and other "widgets" can assist with off-campus access. 

Most widgets are unsupported by the Library and provided on an "as-is" basis. Although we have done some testing of each widget, and may even use them ourselves, we can't guarantee that they will work in all situations. Use at your own risk.

  • EZProxy Redirect (Chrome) is an extension that performs the same redirect/reload function as ProxyGU, but from within a context-sensitive menu.
  • Unpaywall (Chrome, Firefox) finds free versions of papers. 
  • Kopernio (Chrome, Firefox, Edge) stores your credentials and can provide smooth one-click access to many papers, along with storage features. (There is a cost for premium features.)
