What is OpenAthens?
OpenAthens is an identity and access management service which provides access to online resources via the Library, FLO, and reading lists.
Logging in to library resources
If you're attempting to log in to a resource and you encounter a message such as Authenticate via your Institution, Login with OpenAthens or Access via your university, choose the option Flinders University online resources. You will then be prompted to log in with your FAN. You will only have to log in again after 8 hours of inactivity.
Create a link to an online resource
The OpenAthens link generator tool creates a link (or up to 50 links) to online resources that will log students and staff into the Library subscription.
The OpenAthens logo below can be dragged to your browser's bookmarks bar to quickly access library resources via OpenAthens.
