How do I enter my proxy information in manually?


If we do not have your EZproxy information on file, you may enter it in manually. 

To do this, please follow the steps below:

  • Find the EZProxy URL provided by your university. This URL typically looks like this: http://ezp.universityname/login?url=%@ 
  • You can typically find it on your university library’s website, or contact your librarian for assistance. 
  • In ReadCube Papers, open your account page
  • Select "Edit" in the Institution section
  • Select “Manually Enter Proxy URL” and enter your EZProxy URL in the box below.

If your institution uses a network/browser proxy:

  • Open your ReadCube Papers account 
  • In the institutional affiliation pane, you may select your institution from the list and uncheck the box marked “Use my institution proxy to access authenticated content online”
  • If your institution is not listed, select “No Affiliation”
  • ReadCube Papers will use your operating system-wide proxy settings to access the internet.

To request the addition of your institution to our automatic configuration list:

  • Send the URL, along with your institution’s official name to ReadCube Papers Support
  • We’ll add your institution to the list for the next update to ReadCube.
