Q. What is OpenAthens?


OpenAthens is a single sign-on (SSO) solution that enables access to both federated and proxy based access to e-resources. It is used by organizations and e-resource providers to give users secure access to online resources such as databases, e-journals and e-books. With OpenAthens, users can access all of their subscribed resources using a single set of login credentials, eliminating the need to remember multiple usernames and passwords.
