OpenAthens

Get remote one-click access to the resources you subscribe to. From students to clinicians, over four million people worldwide use OpenAthens to access essential online content.

Solve all your identity and access problems

Are you still issuing users with a username and password for every different database, journal or online resource that your organisation subscribes to? Is it difficult to keep track of who has access to what? Are you wasting money because people aren't making full use of content that you've purchased?

OpenAthens is an advanced access management system from Eduserv. It simplifies access to subscription-based content by giving users a single username and password. OpenAthens is designed to be secure and easy to manage, whether you need a locally hosted system that integrates with your existing user directory or someone to host the system for you.

OpenAthens is flexible. Whether you want to manage identity information and access subscription content or allow subscription-based access to resources that you charge for, there's a solution that's right for you.
