Access to UVa licensed resources such as online books, journals, and search tools (e.g. Ovid MEDLINE) is restricted to UVa faculty, staff, and students. To access these resources from outside UVa, use the UVa proxy server via EZproxy.
As of May 15, 2012, the University has implemented a new EZproxy method to provide off-Grounds access to library resources. The new proxy server will not require a separate account or browser configurations, and will work on mobile devices. To access library resources from off-Grounds, you will be prompted for a NetBadge login, which is the same system used to access your UVa e-mail. In the event that you experience difficulty accessing resources via the recommended EZproxy method, you may wish to try the steps below to configure Firefox for use with the older, Squid Proxy method.
You should now have access to restricted resources for the rest of your Firefox session.
If you forget your proxy password, you can re-create your account by going to the Proxy Server Account Management page.
If your login fails, or you encounter any other problems using the proxy server, please call the ITC Help Desk at (434) 924-4357 or send e-mail to email@example.com for assistance.
