What is MyAthens?

MyAthens logo

  MyAthens is a sign-on system that provides easy and seamless access to library resources and services.

  You must login to MyAthens (or open a free account) in order to access most digital articles, books, & databases.

  However, you may be prompted to login to MyAthens for some resources even when on-site.

  Please read Creating an Account information before registering.


Hints for Users

Don't wait until Sunday evening at midnight to register! Nobody can help you then. Register during the week so that Library staff can help you if needed.

The OpenAthens user session lasts eight hours Unless:

*   The user logs out, or

*   The user closes their internet browser (terminating their session)

The user must have cookies enabled in their browser.
