  • EZProxy is a web-based way to access Library resources (e.g., ejournals, databases) remotely.
  • When accessing resources through the Library’s web site or “Find It” icon in databases like PubMed, you will be prompted to log in to EZProxy.
  • Enter your UT Southwestern or Parknet username and password.
  • Your session will remain open until you close the browser window.

For help with your UT Southwestern username and password, see http://utsouthwestern.net/password (on-campus access only) or contact Information Resources at 214-648-7600 for further assistance. If you are an Austin Program affiliate, contact your GME office for help with your UT Southwestern username and password.

I need help with VPN.

Juniper VPN (Virtual Private Network) connects your remote computer to the UT Southwestern network and allows access to library and other university resources (e.g., the campus intranet, department drives) as though you were on campus. Once connected via VPN, you can access all library resources (e.g., ejournals, databases).

UT Southwestern faculty, staff, and students have VPN authorization by default. See more VPN info. (on-campus access only)
