You may have noticed that if you log into Canvas and then head over to CLICsearch or another St. Thomas resource you are already logged in. That is because the University of St. Thomas has been moving towards Single Sign On to combat login fatigue.
However, you may have also noticed that even if you are logged into Office 365, Canvas, and CLICsearch, EZ Proxy would still ask you to log in before accessing one of the library databases.
Beginning Wednesday, August 29, 2018, the repetitive EZ Proxy Login will be no more, it will now all be done through the already familiar St. Thomas login page we know and love.
What do you need to do? Nothing!
No links will change as EZ Proxy is just changing the login page it presents to users.
Here’s the schedule of events:
- Tonight around midnight we will make the switch temporarily as a final test and then revert back.
- Tomorrow around 9am we will permanently change the configuration.
- Technical staff will be around all day Wednesday and Thursday to make sure things go well.
Library staff will monitor the situation. From what we can tell there should be no impact on services as it is just replacing one login with another.
Let us know if you have any questions.
Have a safe and happy Launch Day!
