ZSR recently switched to a new proxy service for off-campus access to library resources. Our proxy is what prompts you to login with your WFU username and password before connecting you to electronic journals, databases, ebooks, and other resources when you are off campus.
Links have been updated on the Library’s website, and in our Primo catalog, Find a Journal service, and Find a Database service. Using our links will continue to connect you to library resources with no interruption.
However, if you are an instructor with links to library resources in your Canvas site, or if you have saved or bookmarked Library URLs anywhere else, you may need to check if they need to be updated.
If any of your links go to go.libproxy.wakehealth.edu, that is the old proxy. We currently anticipate that it will be deactivated on April 30, 2022, and those links may not work after that date.
If you have links pointing to the old proxy, please copy the current URL from Primo, Find a Journal, or Find a Database. If you discover any remaining links on the ZSR website pointing to the old proxy, please use the Report a Problem button on that page, or go straight to our Problem Report form.
Please reach out to your liaison librarian or email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
