Q. Why is OpenAthens more effective than IP authentication?


With OpenAthens, information professionals have access to granular statistics based on end-user account data – anonymous IP authentication does not provide this. In addition, IP authentication doesn’t work well for remote access to e-resources. Using OpenAthens for off and on-site access across devices gives end users a consistent experience in all situations. End users are also able to access e-resources across service provider sites with just one login and get direct access to their personal profiles on the publisher sites that deliver this.
