EZproxy replaces Athens for off-campus access to almost all resources

We have updated the library catalogue and our 'databases' web pages so that all resources that used to use Athens for off-campus access (but needed no password on campus) are now routed via EZproxy. This is possible because EZproxy no longer has problems with firewalls.

Only a handful of resources (none of them e-journals) require an Athens login, and they require it both on- and off-campus. We will soon change our links to these resources so that our link goes straight to our Athens login page.
