OpenAthens is a sign-in method for online resources known as a Single Sign-On (SSO). All you need is your ECU email and password to seamlessly access Linscheid Library's resources. You will only need to log in once at the beginning of each session you spend searching for resources online.
Whether you are an instructor or a student, OpenAthens promises to make your life easier in the long run. The verification process through the library website or a library database will be the same as logging into Blackboard, Colleague, and your email!
Our migration to using OpenAthens will not affect the content made available on the library's resources, and you will not be asked to authenticate for library resources when you are using a campus computer.
