IUG 2021 Virtual Presentation: Making the Move to OpenAthens

We have come to the final featured video presentation from IUG 2021! This video will be freely available on YouTube for about a week - great opportunity to share with colleagues who may not have been able to attend the conference!

Thanks to Pam Childers, Denise Gehring and Beth Juhl for this look at transitioning from WAM to OpenAthens!

Making the Move to OpenAthens: Walking Away from WAM

Three libraries share their journeys from WAM (Web Access Management) proxy to the OpenAthens service. Azusa Pacific and Indiana Wesleyan, who migrated in 2019, will share their lessons learned and assessment of the service while the University of Arkansas, who migrated in 2020, will share their process and advice for a successful transition.
