OpenAthens for Remote Access: Welcome to OpenAthens

Welcome to OpenAthens!

OpenAthens is our sign-in method for off-campus access to library resources. OpenAthens lets you log in with your Elmhurst University Technology Account enumber and password, and stay logged into library resources longer.

How to Login

Use our library links to e-journals, ebooks, and databases so that you can be authenticated as a current student, faculty, or staff member.

These links will take you first to a prompt to choose your login method.

In almost every case, you will log in by choosing "Sign in with your Elmhurst University Account..."

Already signed into another campus service, such as Blackboard or Outlook? You will usually not have to authenticate again.
