University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Library
Proxy Server - Important Information

Maintained by the Robert M. Bird Library

Revised 07/10/08

OUHSC affiliated users can login on this page. Norman affiliated users will need to go to the OU Libraries page to access resources. Unfortunately licensing issues with these products don't allow for broad access to both library resources and we apologize for the inconvenience.

The proxy makes it appear as though you are part of the campus network, thereby granting you access to IP restricted resources. The Bird Library utilizes proxy software which is compatible with Internet Explorer, Netscape and other browsers, and does not require you to configure your browser.

When you click on a resource that is restricted by IP address and you are not on the OUHSC network or using the OUHSC modem pool, you will be brought to this page and will need to login. The login is your OUHSC domain userid and password (the same one you use to access your campus email) and will be good as long as your browser is open if you have your browser set to accept cookies.  That means that if you access another restricted resource during the session, you won't be required to login again.  Once you exit the browser, you will be required to login the next time you open your browser and attempt to access a restricted resource.

Security Certificate
The security for the proxy server has been enhanced. Because of how this has been set up you may receive an error indicating there is a problem with the security certificate. If you receive this error click OK, Continue or Accept to gain access to resources.

When accessing journals from off-campus , a few electronic journals may not be accessible using a third-party Internet service provider due to proxy restrictions imposed by the publisher, but email us to make sure this is the case if you have problems.



If you are having problems logging into the proxy on nights and weekends, please call the Library at 405-271-2285, opt.1, to report the problem.
