Remote Access Problems for Artstor

On the EZproxy mailing list, a number of libraries are reporting the same problems we’ve been seeing here at Baruch. On campus access is fine, but users from off campus aren’t able to view content (they can log in and get to the Artstor home screen, but that’s it).

Today, I’ll be trying a number of fixes to our settings in EZproxy suggested on the mailing list by other librarians to see what works (neither Artstor nor OCLC, which owns EZproxy have working solutions of their own yet).
