Online Resource access streamlined for UT affiliates

Starting soon, most electronic resources (as journals, books, databases as PubMed) will be accessed in a more streamlined manner on and off campus While the process, through Open Athens**  has already started, the go-live date is August 1st.

Logging into UToledo Libraries Online Resources from On-Campus

UT Affiliates will be prompted to log into their UTAD account prior to accessing electronic resource content.
If a patron is already logged into a MyUT Portal account or another University of Toledo single sign-on service platform within the same web browsing session, the patron will be passed through to the online library resources without another log in being prompted/required.

Logging into UToledo Libraries Online Resources from Off-Campus

UT affiliates will be directed to the UTAD Login screen rather than the UTLibraries Login screen.
If a user is already logged into a MyUT Portal account or another University of Toledo single sign-on service platform within the same web browsing session, the user will be passed through to the online library resources without another log in being required.

What about previous used/bookmarked links?

Older links to these resources will continue to work. With the changes being made to publicly posted access points, however, some patrons may notice the change if they regularly access resources through the database lists scheduled to be updated.
