Ebook Central Proxy Configuration Options

1. EZproxy Configurations: Please note that you must contact Ebook Support before configuring any of the below EZProxy options, as there may be additional configuration required on the Ebook Central side.
 
1a. EZproxy SSO 

Add the following stanza, where YOUREBCENTRALSITE is your Ebook Central site ID:

Title Ebook Central SSO

1b. EZproxy SharedSecret

EZproxy SharedSecret is only supported for customers who were using it on EBL before migrating to Ebook Central.

Add the following stanza, where YOUREBCENTRALSITE is your Ebook Central site ID.

Title EBL
AllowVars u
EncryptVar u astringyoupick
EBLSecret KKKKK
URL http://YOUREBCENTRALSITE.eblib.com
URL http://www.YOUREBCENTRALSITE.eblib.com
DJ eblib.com

In this example, astringyoupick is used to encrypt the user information you send to Ebook Central. This string can be a series of numbers, letters and/or characters of your choosing and does not need to be shared with us.

Please note it is essential that the EBL stanza is placed above any ExcludeIP (E) or AutoLoginIP (A) lines because for Ebook Central, both on- and off-campus users need to authenticate. If you have Include (I) lines, they should go before the EBL stanza.

Also, Add the following Ebook Central stanza (no special location required, this stanza can be added at any time):

Title Ebook Central Proxied
