Starting in September 2021, HKBU Library is progressively introducing a new authentication system called "OpenAthens" to enhance access our online resources. All library users will be asked to authenticate to access library e-resources both on and off campus.
Users will only need to authenticate to OpenAthens once per session. Each session stays active for up to 8 hours, unless you clear your browser cache and cookies.
During the transition, our legacy authentication system (EZproxy) will run parallel to OpenAthens to help ensure there is no disruption to e-resource access.
OpenAthens is an identity and IP-based authentication system that provides access to the library's e-resources via single sign-on (SSO) technology.
