Our Vendors grant us access to their databases by authenticating our users by IP address.
On campus: If you are on Appleton FVTC campus; inside firewall; inside IP range specified: Then you are considered authenticated under our license agreement. Library pays for subscription and you use it at no extra cost.
Off campus: EzProxy is the middle manager.
It looks inside our firewall at the MyFVTC active directory (directory of who has an active MyFVTC account). It then tells vendors yes/no to question "Authorized?" If you have an active MyFVTC account the answer is "yes", and you can sign into database the same way you sign into your email. userID@fvtc.edu and password. MUST use @fvtc.edu in Username so it know where you are coming from.
Here is the Process Map:
Once you have logged into the database through the Library EzProxy, you can create an account.
