In order to provide access to resources that use https, your EZproxy server must be configured with an SSL certificate.

Elsevier ScienceDirect and Scopus require EZproxy 6.1.16 or later, and the following three database stanzas in config.txt

A Hosted EZproxy Include File is available for this resource. Hosted EZproxy customers will receive automatic updates with OCLC’s latest version of this stanza by adding the following line to config.txt:

IncludeFile databases/sciencedirect.txt

Note: Prior to ScienceDirect's HTTPS transition (November 2017), OCLC provided an alternative ScienceDirect stanza specifically designed to address reCAPTCHA problems. This stanza has not been redeveloped for ScienceDirect's HTTPS environment, as no reCAPTCHA problems were encountered during testing with Elsevier.
