Coming soon: EZproxy single sign-on

Due to popular demand, the Library will be switching the EZproxy sign-on method. Users with a umassmed.edu email address will no longer be required to use their Library-issued barcode number to log in. Instead they will use their umassmed.edu email credentials to authenticate. EZproxy users without a umassmed.edu email address will continue to use their barcode number and password to log in.

This change to single sign-on will take place on January 4, 2021 at approximately 8:30 a.m. More details will follow in a later message.
