Here's how! 

1. Add the IP address of your Proxy Server to the E-Reserves Access Rules in LibGuides CMS. (Admin Stuff > System Settings > Access Rules)

2. Add your LibGuides CMS site address to your EZ-Proxy Server Config File

3. Route all users to the your E-Reserves via the proxified URL:

4. To allow on-campus users direct access, add their IP ranges (on-campus or in your community) to your LibGuides CMS Access Rules and to your Proxy Server Config File.

creating a new access rule

 5. Create a custom error page/redirect page (contact:

When users access your system from an unknown IP address, from the un-proxified URL or if they select the E-Reserves tab on your LibGuides CMS homepage they will be shown an 'access denied' message (see image below) by default, or they can be redirected to a URL of your choosing.

This can be used to redirect the visitor to an EZproxy or VPN login page, a text page that explains how to access the content from off-campus, or any other URL you choose.

Please note: we do not support any method of single sign-on for putting a Springshare product (LibGuides/LibGuides CMS/LibAnswers/LibCal/LibAnalytics) behind a login or authenticating against a list of users (LDAP).
