Doing research outside of UBC?

We’re here to help! Current UBC students, faculty and staff can access licensed Library resources including Journals, Indexes & Databases and other resources from off-campus computers. All you need is a valid Campus-Wide Login (CWL) or UBC Library Card.

Not a UBC Patron? Community Borrowers, Alumni and members of the public have access to these unrestricted databases.


To get instant access, all you need to do is start your research from the UBC Library web site. No setups required!

When accessing a journal or database, EZproxy will automatically determine whether you are a valid UBC patron. If it cannot determine you are valid, it will simply ask you to provide your login credentials (i.e. CWL or Library Barcode/PIN).

To get started, go to the EZproxy login page.

For more information on using EZproxy, check out the following pages on the UBC Library web site:
