The TCS Education System (TCSES) Libraries will be migrating to OpenAthens, a new authentication service that will improve security and access control of library resources, reduce service interruptions, integrate with the institutions' single sign-on (SSO) services, and provide usage data. While OpenAthens will become the primary authentication platform, the libraries will still maintain their current system, EZProxy, as a backup and failover authentication system.
When will the change happen?
Starting June 8, 2022, all eResources will begin to shift from EZProxy to OpenAthens.
What does this mean for you?
Keep using the TCSES Libraries Shared eResources page to access the shared databases. They will be set to use the new authentication system
When prompted, enter your school's credentials; If you are used to logging in via EZProxy, the experience will remain similar. For some of the vendors, you might need to look for the Login via Institution button
The libraries will still maintain EZProxy as a back up and failover system.
