FAQ about OpenAthens

Why can't I find My Bookself or other personal account content? 

Some Library resources will automatically create a new MyBookshelf or other personal account when you first sign in with OpenAthens, the Library's new authentication service.  This new personal account will be tied to your University account and be instantly available to you every time you access this resource. You will need to either merge the contents of your existing account with your new University associated personal account or copy and replicate the content you want to keep into your new account.

Some resources have the ability to merge personal accounts.  Examples:

Some resources may not have the functionality to merge accounts in which case users may want to copy saved searches, alerts and other content into their new account.
