OpenAthens is an identity and IP-based authentication system that provides access to the library's licensed online resources via single sign-on (SSO) technology. It is replacing our previous system, EZProxy. OpenAthens offers a more secure and reliable experience for the Washington & Jefferson College community.
Most resources have been migrated to OpenAthens. To avoid broken links, please update your permalinks.
If you have questions about updating permalinks, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
W&J students, staff, and faculty must use their W&J credentials to access online resources when they are off campus. Users will only need to authenticate to OpenAthens once per session. An OpenAthens session stays active for up to 8 hours, unless you clear your browser cache and cookies.
