Proxy Prefix Needed To Access Library Resources from Off-Campus

The Proxy Prefix is

It must come before the Vendor's URL (CultureGrams, EBSCO, Films on Demand, Ovid, etc.)

The Proxy login authenticates you as an affiliate of FVTC, and allows the Vendor's Database to recognize you as an affiliate of FVTC.

Why all the bother?

Vendors make money from controlling the right to access expensive journals.

 The FVTC Library pays for subscriptions to give current MyFVTC account users free access to expensive content.

Proxy prefix:  
This string must be added to a subscription URL to prompt a login screen and prove you have an active MyFVTC account.

If you have an active MyFVTC Account, and successfully log in, then EzProxy informs the vendor that you are authorized to access our Library subscriptions. 

When you have yourself logged into Cisco Anyconnect (not Citirix) , it confuses our EzProxy!

When you use Cisco AnyConnect to connect to your desk on campus, it bypasses Ezproxy, so the database can't see that you are an authorized user.

Suggestion: Disconnect from Cisco AnyConnect when you need to use Library Databases.

Alternative:  Create a personal login to the database so you can log in regardless of your location.
