Do vendors even directly support SSO? We use SSO to enable users to authenticate into EZProxy for IP-based access to our electronic resources. I didn't think cutting out EZProxy and just going with SSO was an option.

I'll second Bethany's point on many smaller vendors just now moving to IP authentication. If it consoles campus IT tell them they are right....it has been at least 10 years since I have been hearing that proxy servers are a thing of the past, but that the working normal across most libraries is IP/proxy authentication.
