Connelly Library now uses OpenAthens, a user authentication and e-resources access system that acts as a gateway to digital resources licensed by Connelly Library. OpenAthens replaces EZproxy.

OpenAthens allows for greater flexibility in providing access to different user groups, better account security and usage data, and single sign-on for access. 


What will change?

  • The sign-in process to access resources off campus will look a little different for users.
  • Previously saved links will need to be updated. 
  • Anyone who was using an account on individual platforms will need to make note of the merging process outlined in this guide.
