OpenAthens will begin to replace our current remote access system (EzProxy) starting December 19th, 2022, and will continue over the course of the Spring 2023 semester. We will finish the migration with a final transition of vendors that only allow OpenAthens or EzProxy access after the end of the semester. Users will use their same WSU credentials and be prompted when and where to enter them. Our previous system (EzProxy) will be retired sometime in the latter half of 2023. We will notify the WSU community closer to that date.
What this means.
OpenAthens will remember the browser the user is authenticated on. Fewer sign-ins will be necessary
Improved resource tracking so the WSU Libraries can better select what resources to keep
Multiple access routes to WSU Libraries resources
The WSU Libraries began migrating resources to OpenAthens on December 19th, 2022. The list below was the first set of resources to be migrated. On May 8th, the majority of the remaining vendors will be switched to Open Athens.
