include use of tools and documentation in support of cataloging with RDA.

*Title:Beyond “Set it and Forget it”: Proactively Managing Your EZproxy
Server**Speaker*: Jenny Rosenfeld

When was the last time you really took a deep dive into your EZproxy
configuration? Many EZproxy administrators are happy that EZproxy “just
works,” but they may be missing critical opportunities to provide better
access to their e-resources. In this workshop, Jenny Rosenfeld, Senior
Implementation Program Manager at OCLC, will share a simple monthly routine
to help reduce your patrons’ barriers to access and identify potential
security concerns. We’ll also cover current topics of interest to the
EZproxy community, such as how to modify database stanzas to support HTTPS,
for both OCLC-hosted and self-hosted customers.
