Library Access For Preceptors and Residents

What is OpenAthens?

OpenAthens is an access management platform that Touro College and University system is using to update how students, faculty and staff access the libraries' electronic resources.  OpenAthens is more secure and reliable, and should resolve the problems that some users have experienced accessing resources off campus.

What benefits do I get if I register for OpenAthens?

An Open Athens Account gives you access, to the Sirota Library's subscription databases and the full text of journals and ebooks.  An OpenAthens Account allows you to access our resources from anywhere at any time.

Unfortunatley, access to UpToDate is NOT permitted for preceptors in Touro's licensing agreement.

 A single sign in will give you access to all the library's electronic resources for eight hours. 

The authentication process will differ based on whether resources are accessed via Touro's portal or directly from a content provider's website.

How long does my OpenAthens account last?

You are registered initially for one year.  Your account can be renewed and will remain valid as long as you are affiliated with or an employee of Touro.
