Off-Campus Access

The Library Proxy Server

Current Bryn Mawr students, faculty, and staff can access subscription databases from outside the Tri-College computing network by using EZProxy, the College's system for providing access to licensed resources from off campus.

EZProxy is reliable and easy to use. It works with any secure web browser, and does not require any customization of your browser's settings. To use EZProxy, you will need to know your BMC e-mail username and password (the same as you use for webmail).

NB: There is a conflict between the AnyConnect VPN system and EZProxy.  You will not be able to use the EZProxy system while you are connected to the VPN.  We apologize for this inconvenience.

Here's how it works: simply log in, and navigate to library resources from the library's website or Tripod. If you close your browser windows, you will need to log back in.

A Tri-Co page with other frequently asked questions about EZProxy is also available.

If you do not remember your BMC e-mail password, you may reset it yourself by using the Password Reset Utility.

Please contact the BMC Help Desk with any technical problems using this service at (610) 526-7440 or If you need help using library resources, please contact a reference librarian at (610) 526-5279 or
