Kelvin Smith Library
At the start of 2019, the CWRU Libraries implemented a new authentication method. Via OpenAthens, a user of the library online resources will be routed through CWRU's Single Sign-On (SSO). The advantage is VPN will no longer be needed for the majority of library resources.
What do you need to know?
Please note that when on a database or journal website, a link to OpenAthens may lead back to the CWRU Single Sign-On screen.
For assistance, please use the Ask A Librarian services.
The Kelvin Smith Library has retired the Summon search and switched to a new tool. CWRU Libraries Discovery operates in a similar fashion and allows the searching across the libraries collections and beyond. It will search 1.2+ million book and journal titles, which includes over tens of millions of articles.
The CWRU Libraries Discovery is available both on and off-campus via OpenAthens login.
To save search results in EBSCO databases, there is a new way to log in. You no longer have to create an EBSCO personal account. This new option takes you through the CWRU single sign-on (SSO) using your campus network ID.
Once you click the sign-in button you will be able to save search results to your personal EBSCO folder.
