Remote Access System Downtime on June 2

18 05 2017

On Friday, June 2, remote access to licensed library content will be interrupted while BCTC udpates the EZproxy software on our server. Work will begin at 9 am and should be done by 11 am. During the period of downtime, we will need to use temporary workarounds for common tasks both on and off campus:

Access to Databases on Campus

  1. Go to our A-Z list of databases and right mouse click on the one you want to use; from the list of options you’ll see, select the one that will copy the link address
  2. Paste the URL in the browser and then remove the EZproxy prefix, the part of the URL that begins with http://remote.baruch.cuny.edu/login?url=
  3. After removing the EZproxy prefix from the URL, you can then safely navigate to the database (as long as you are on campus)

Off Campus Access to Databases

  1. Go to the list of databases and e-resources centrally purchased by CUNY and use the links there: http://www2.cuny.edu/libraries/e-resources/
  2. Once you select a database from this page, you’ll need to use your Baruch library number (AKA your “barcode”) to log in

Searching On or Off Campus for Books 

  1. Either use OneSearch (select “Books + Articles + Videos” in our search bar) or use this unproxied URL for the library catalog: https://libsearch.cuny.edu./F?func=find-b-0&local_base=baruch
