Abstract

e-Resources are the mainstay of any modern library in the information redundant era. Modern library users cannot pass a day without referring e-resources. A library can’t hold a stock of the resources if it does not makes it available to the users. The users residing inside or outside the campus should procure the desired information, which they could access without wasting their time. Hence, the management of e-resources has become a more challenging and daunting task in modern libraries. KMC Health Sciences Library, Manipal University, Manipal offers diverse sets of electronic resources for its users. User community, residing outside the campus and off campus are thwarted from the ability to access library e-resources in their needed hours. Due to the pressing demand from the user community for remote access to the subscribed resources, library initiated the search for appropriate off campus login access solutions and identified EZproxy remote access software. EZproxy is server based software provided by the OCLC. This paper gives a detailed account on how this remote access software went live in the library, its benefits, features, hardware and operating system requirements and terms and conditions for both subscription and usage of EZproxy at the KMC Health Sciences Library.
