Managing time and resources is a careful balancing act, so any way to reduce the burden of unnecessary admin work is always welcome. It’s important to enable quick and easy access to content for your patrons both onsite and when accessing remotely. In this webinar, we’ll discuss how OpenAthens single sign-on can help you scale up services and take the weight off your shoulders.


  • What is federated access and how does it compare with other single sign-on services?
  • How OpenAthens hosted services and the identity federation can help support secure, seamless, and intuitive user experiences for both users and administrators
  • Why it’s important for libraries and IT teams to talk and work together from the start of the project
  • How EBSCO supports setup and onboarding
  • Q&A


  • Brian Erb, director of library support and training, Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC)
