Through a statewide initiative in coordination with FLVC and other institutions of the Florida College System and State University System libraries, the FAU Libraries is transitioning e-resources authentication from EZproxy to OpenAthens.

OpenAthens is a gateway service that provides access to the FAU Libraries' licensed electronic resources. For the first time, you will have access to the Libraries’ e-resources without needing to be on the Libraries’ website! You can use an Internet search engine like Google or go directly to a publisher’s website to access the Libraries “Athenized” e-resources via FAU Single Sign-On (SSO)!  

You may also access the Libraries e-resources through one of the following FAU Libraries services listed below:

Search results may be limited by date, language, source type (books, academic journals, magazines, etc.), peer-reviewed status, and other criteria.
