OpenAthens is a not-for-profit organization helping over 2,900 organizations enable access to hundreds of thousands of resources for over 5 million users across the world. However, we understand that some institutions with limited budgets have greater issues providing their users secure remote access to their digital subscriptions. This is why we have been working to develop a low-cost, easy-to-use single-sign-on service (SSO) aimed at removing these barriers.
The new product is a light and refreshed version of our existing library product. A key difference is that OpenAthens Connect supports a limited number of up to 20 vendor resources from the OpenAthens catalogue, compared with an unlimited number in our standard product.
