Access to Online Resources

Boston University Medical Campus (BUMC) students, faculty, staff, residents, and other users who have a BU login name and Kerberos password can access licensed online resources from off-campus locations through an authentication service called EZproxy. These resources include electronic journals, textbooks, databases, and other Web-based tools. Users no longer need the VPN or Proxy Server to access most resources.

  • If you need to renew or apply for a BU (Kerberos) login account, please follow the instructions on the Computer Lab’s Accessing Library Resources page.
  • For more information on EZproxy, please visit the BU Information Services & Technology EZproxy page.
  • If your BU ID and password are not working (you are not able to sign into any BU service), please contact BUMC IT via the Computing Help Desk at (617) 358-1111 or Your account may need to be updated or renewed.
