The new MyAthens

For librarians who need a simple and easy way to show their users what resources they can access, MyAthens is a library-owned information portal that provides a user-friendly starting point for research.

So what's it all about?

  • Enables librarians to offer a high-quality digital experience for patrons, while saving library staff time to focus on what matters most.
  • A single place for library patrons to see what content is available to them without needing to configure or manage any links outside of OpenAthens.
  • Re-designed to create a simple and intuitive user experience that is accessible for all audiences on all devices.
