Pre-Conference Workshop 2: Getting Everything Ezproxy has to Offer: Administration Tips, Customization Tricks and Assessment Insights

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop is for anyone and everyone involved with administering the Ezproxy remote access management software. EZproxy is one of the most common tools used by libraries in managing remote access to licensed electronic resources. In many cases the administration of EZproxy falls to electronic resources librarians.This workshop will take an in-depth and hands-on look at administering Ezproxy including managing the configuration files that give Ezproxy its power. Hands-on time will allow you to adjust and modify your configuration files in light of what is presented. We will discuss various authentication approaches along with ways to optimize access security and control. We will share troubleshooting lessons learned and offer recommendations for minimizing problems. We will share various customization techniques that have been applied to Ezproxy creating a better and more effective user experience as well as improving system administration. Hands-on time will allow you to try out some of the customizations that might be of interest. Finally, we will share several different approaches that have been implemented to use the information gathered and stored in Ezproxy log files for assessment of resource use and user activity purposes. Bring a log file and during hands-on time we will try out one of the assessments techniques presented. We intend for the workshop to be highly conversational, interactive and focused on real-world experiences. We won't claim to know everything but we will try to provide as much expertise and assistance as we can to help you optimize your Ezproxy environment.
