Access to Electronic Resources

This guide explains how to connect to databases and full-text electronic journal articles and books.

Benefits of OpenAthens to Users

There are several benefits to this new system:

  • Single-Sign-On means you can move from resource to resource without re-entering your credentials.
  • You only have to log in once every 8 hours, unless you switch browsers, clear out your cookies, or change computers.
  • You will be logged in to the resource site as an individual, and can take advantage of personalization features such as saving search results or favorite settings.
  • You can log in directly on a resource site (for most major publishers) without having to start at the library website.
