OCLC announced that EZproxy, a software utility used by thousands of libraries to provide access to restricted electronic resources to library patrons, is now available through software-as-a-service. EZproxy had previously been available only for local installation. Initially the SaaS option will be available only to institutions in the United States and Canada; with availability to those in other regions to follow. OCLC acquired EZproxy from Useful Utilities in January 2008.
