A.T. Still Memorial Library: Introducing OpenAthens

March 22, 2019
Posted In: Arizona Campus, AT Still Library News, AT Still Memorial Library, Faculty & Staff Headlines, Missouri Campus, Student Headlines, University Headlines

The A.T. Still Memorial Library is very excited to announce it began to implement the OpenAthens authentication system on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. 

OpenAthens is an access management platform, allowing libraries to enable and monitor access to subscribed online content. Access and authentication are managed simply, securely, and effectively while providing insight and data that supports the information needs of the institution.

Very little disruption is expected, but if something does not work, give it a minute and try again. If it continues, call or email the library (Missouri: 660.626.2345,; Arizona:480.219.6090, your liaison librarian.

An important point – There will be no change to the number of resources your library subscribes – everything will still be available.

What will change?

The means you use to access those resources when off campus will change, but on-campus access will be the same.

  • Off-site OpenAthens authentication

For off-site authentication to resources and databases, you will still use your ATSU credentials (username and password) just as you do now, but where you log in will change for some resources. You will only need to authenticate once to start an eight-hour long OpenAthens session. During that time, you will not be asked to authenticate again regardless of the number of different content platforms you visit.

  • Begin an OpenAthens research session using any of these methods:
    • Search using a Still OneSearch query from the library homepage (
    • Access the library website from the ATSU portal (
    • Click on a link to the library within Canvas or Blackboard.
    • Access an ATSU subscribed resource you find using Google or a saved link.
      • On some of the most popular platforms, you will have an option to log in with OpenAthens. If it offers you this option, select “A.T. Still University” and enter your ATSU username and password.
      • Some platforms may ask you to select “your federation” when logging in. If given this option, please select OpenAthens Federation.

What do you have to do?

  • Update any saved direct bookmarks and links to specific library resources.

If you are a faculty member or course designer, you will need to update your course links and bookmarks before June 30, 2018. To update links, send your list of links to your liaison librarian for help building updated links. The library liaisons will contact all professors to help them update their links in Canvas or PowerPoints.

If you have any issues, please get in touch with the library staff. They will be able to help you.
