OpenAthens is a system that allows you to connect to the platforms hosting the Library's digital resources (publisher's website or database, etc.) with the institutional login (ISIs/HUG) from any computer, worldwide, without VPN.

How to connect?

You can use one of these 3 options:

  1. Via the links proposed on swisscovery UNIGE portal following your literature search
  2. Directly on the website of the publisher you are interested in according to the procedure available here
  3. From the direct link available on the list of publishers covered below


Which publishers and platforms are covered by this authentication?

The following list allows you to find the editors currently covered and the direct links to the authentication which makes access easier (if your ISIs/HUG connection was made on another website and you did not close the browser, your session lasts 12 hours and you will be authenticated automatically):
