In January 2022, the WFU Libraries switched from using a copy of EZProxy* hosted on the Medical Campus to one hosted at OCLC. When we made that switch, we created a temporary redirect so that links to the old server would take users to the new one. At the time, we advised people that the redirect would last through May 2022 and worked to help people update links. To give that process more time, we extended the redirect through the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
That redirect remained in place throughout this semester but will end soon, and links that have not been updated will stop working. The current plan is to turn the redirect off on January 10, 2023.
For anyone maintaining links to library resources, we encourage you to look for any remaining links to the old server, go.libproxy.wakehealth.edu. URLs like this:
Should be changed to this:
If you discover any other links to go.libproxy.wakehealth.edu, please our our Online Content Problem Report form to let us know, and we’ll help you find the updated link.
* EZProxy is one of the tools available to let off-campus users access library resources that are licensed for use based on a user’s IP address. EZProxy requires custom URLs for each publisher site.
