New OpenAthens Tool Provides One-Link Resource Access

Eduserv’s OpenAthens launched Redirector, a tool that helps patrons get access—via a single link for both on- and off-network access—to subscriptions and other paid-for content by requesting their credentials while they are off of a library’s network and delivering the content when they are in range of the library IP addresses. “The proxy-like syntax eases the burden of link management for librarians and provides a seamless experience for users, who are increasingly demanding off-site and mobile access,” the press release states.

“Our clients want their resources to be discoverable and accessible from any location,” says Belinda Kennedy, senior SaaS specialist at EBSCO Information Services. “The Redirector gives OpenAthens the intuitive ability to identify a user’s location and authorise access appropriately.”

For more information, read the press release.
