Alumni databases: Click on "Login to OpenAthens" button before searching

17 August 2020OpenAthens authentication for Alumni databases

From Monday August 17 alumni users will be moving to the OpenAthens service to access the databases available to them. The Alumni Databases page will be updated to include a "Login to OpenAthens" button. This logging in first will give alumni an improved experience in Search. Instead of the current experience of attempting to access a journal article and getting a message that they are not recognised, they will instead, either be able to access the article full text (from an alumni database) or get a message explaining they do not have access to the database.
