Hi Joanne,

We're preparing to do the same thing later this year, so I'd be interested in hearing everyone's replies. Thanks!

Subject: Open Athens for medical libraries

Our library is preparing to move from EZProxy to Open Athens as an authentication system that allows for the use of federated single-sign on option for our users.

I am wondering if there are any other medical libraries out there using Open Athens now, and what kind of experience it has been, and what challenges you incurred moving from your previous authentication system to Open Athens.
