What is EZproxy?


Via EZProxy, members of the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg have remote access to the library's databases and e-books when they're not within the campus net (i.e. from at home).

It's a comfortable alternative to VPN. No additional software is needed - authentication by IT account.

How can I log in?


University members can select a research source here and get access via EZProxy with their IT Services Center account (user name and password).

EZProxy-Zugang zu Datenbanken

How do I see if the login worked?


The address line of your browser shows whether you are logged in correctly: the actual URL is followed by ezproxy.hs-augsburg.de.

e.g.  https://link-springer-com.ezproxy.hs-augsburg.de

The university logo is also displayed in the header of most databases.

Important: If you leave the database website or manually enter a database e.g. by call up via a bookmark, you leave EZProxy and may have to log in again.

Tip: You can revise existing bookmarks on databases in the library by placing http://ezproxy.hs-augsburg.de:2048/login?url= in front of the original bookmark URL.
