A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your users and the Internet so that you can ensure security and improve performance. You can enable authentication/access via proxy server in the ProQuest Administrator Module. If you don't know the proxy URL, check with your library administrator.
Note: The ProQuest Administrator Module is for authorized library/institution personnel only. Please contact customer service if you do not have an account set up, or if you forgot your login information.
Steps to add the proxy prefix:
Log into the ProQuest Admin Module http://admin.proquest.com/
Click Authentication / Access button on the left side
Click the Proxy tab in the middle of the page http://admin.proquest.com/proxytab
Enter your prefix in the forms below. This is based on a proxy prefix of proxy.schoolname.edu
if the proxy does not require a port number III WAM proxy: http://0-search.proquest.com.proxy.schoolname.edu
If using another proxy service provider, please contact the provider for their recommended URL structure.
