Quinnipiac offers Open Athens for certain people who do not have QU credentials so that they can use select databases.
However, as a student or faculty member of QU, you have full access to ALL of our resources and DO NOT need an OpenAthens Login.
If you tried to access a database directly by their URL (for example: ScienceDirect.com) and did not log on through MyQ, you might see the message to contact the library for assistance as ScienceDirect would not recognize you as a member of QU.
Instead, you can follow these steps and have access to the full array of library resources.
1. Log on to MyQ
2. Go to the It/Libraries tab then the Edward & Barbara Netter Library (on sidebar or in the drop down menu as pictured below)
3. Once you are on the Library website, you may access all of the library resources from any location and computer.
4. You might be asked to reauthenticate using your QU credentials when you click on particular databases.
If you encounter problems, please don't hesitate to contact the library.
