Proxy Authentication

Proxy authentication is supported by Credo Reference. We describe the set-up and configuration for OCLC's EZ Proxy and the WAM proxy from Innovative Interfaces below. Other proxy servers can be used for authentication. Contact support@credoreference.com for further help. 

EZ Proxy how-to

There are just a few steps to setting up EZ Proxy access:

1. Provide us with the proxy prefix and proxy IP. If you're using EZ Proxy v6 or above, please include the IPv6 format IP if available. If you don't have this information, the vendor should be able to provide it. 

2. Update your proxy configuration file as described below. More documentation on this process can be found on OCLC's site.

3. Add the proxied Credo link to your database page. The base link is http://search.credoreference.com

4. Add an SSL Certificate to support our secure site (https://). Documentation can be found on OCLC's site here

Once the configuration is complete and tested, let us know and we'll add the proxy prefix to your Credo account so that it combines with your citations, MARC records, and third-party resource links.

WAM (III) Proxy how-to

Here are the steps for setting up WAM Proxy access:

1. Provide us with the proxy server name and proxy IP. If you don't have this information, the vendor should be able to provide it.

2. Update your WAM forward table as described below

3. Add the proxied Credo link to your database page. The base link is http://search.credoreference.com

Once the WAM table update is complete, let us know and we'll add the WAM proxy  to your Credo account so that it combines with your citations, MARC records, and third-party resource links.
