Authenticating from the Web to OpenAthens

If you are browsing online and happen to discover an item of interest, look for a login link on most publisher websites. Some terms to look for include:

  • “Login through your institution”
  • "OpenAthens"
  • "Federated login"
  • Or "Sign In"

Though the navigation will vary a bit on each individual platform, you will usually be asked to specify “Southern New Hamphire University” and then login with your SNHU email and password.

After Login/Authentication

  • You will be asked to authenticate less often
  • An OpenAthens session stays active for up to 8 hours, unless you clear your browser cache and cookies. 
  • On some publisher websites, you may be asked to authenticate more often.
