Hi Amy,

We're on WAM too.

I know that my boss did this in javascript on our old website.

(It doesn't look like it's working on the new site.)

I'll ask him about it and  see if he could get back to you with what he did.

Subject: [WEB4LIB] take pressure off proxy server?


I am brand new to Web4Lib.

We currently use WAM proxy. Every semester, during our busiest times, our proxy server tends to get overloaded, and, as a result, people cannot access resources. They either don’t load, or users get a 402 or a 403 error.

Is there a way we could set up our resources to take pressure off our proxy server? (without having two links in every record)

We are investigating moving to EZProxy, and I’m really, really hoping we will do that next year, but I’d like to be able to offer our patrons a more reliable experience using our resources NOW. Can anyone help me?
