Collection of proxy URLs from various libraries and institutions using software, like EZproxy. Can be used with the Google Chrome Extension or Mozilla Firefox Extension.
This database is also accessible in JSON format. The code for this site and code for the browser extensions are available on GitHub.
To contribute your institution’s proxy URL, or to update an existing entry, submit an issue, or you can edit the database directly and create a pull request. Any questions or comments can be posted on the discussions board.
What happened to ezproxy-db.appspot.com?
I decided to update and simplify the site. We didn’t need a specialized app to manage a simple set of URLs. Instead, the database is just a single file, and this site generated statically from it. Keeping everything in a normal Git repository gets us a bunch of features for free, like tracking changes to the database, and lets me more easily add co-maintainers.
The previous version is still running for now. Requests to the HTML index page are redirected here. Requests for the proxies.json file are proxied through, in order to support upgrading browser extensions to use the new URL. This will be supported at least through the end of 2022.
Feel free to discuss this on the discussion board.
