RE: Authorized Users Question

Has anyone encountered licenses that prohibit the use of a proxy server?

At Humboldt State we use a proxy server to authenticate users against a
copy of the circulation database.  The copy is updated monthly I think,
and some user types such as community borrowers are screened out.  I think
this is a fairly common solution for authentication judging from
discussions on web4lib.  When the remote user selects an authenticated
database, he/she is prompted to enter bar code and password.  We do this
at the Library since the campus has no authentication server as yet.
