EZproxy Moving to Microsoft Entra ID SSO (Single-Sign-On) Authentication

Albright College Library is planning to change how users log into EZproxy ( on July 1, 2024. Current LDAP Active Directory Domain authentication will change to the college’s Office 365-based Entra ID (former Azure) Active Directory authentication.

These changes will server to:
  • Simplify the library authentication infrastructure
  • Provide uniform user experience across library web applications
  • Enhance our authentication services security with a modern protocol
  • Take advantage of the high availability of Microsoft Entra ID’s cloud-based service
  • Take advantage of two-factor authentication (MFA), when enable, to improve account security
  • Allow single-sign-on to other library and Entra ID configured web services

After the change is made, users will be prompted to enter their LionLink username (email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) into the same authentication window (see pic) that they currently see when they log into Office 365/web mail.
