Accessing eResources - On and Off Campus


Go to CHSL homepage at  https://case.edu/chslibrary/ and search for desired resource using the Search Box tabs.

Your search results page will have OpenAthen-ized URL's that will link you to the CWRU SSO page to sign in.


In 2019, CWRU implemented a new authentication method called OpenAthens to login into eResources (both on- and off- campus). If you see this login, search for Case Western Reserve University in the 'Find your institution' field and you will be routed to the SSO/Single Sign-On.


Please note that even though OpenAthens links are posted on vendor websites, most platforms/vendors will not properly authenticate if you start your research outside of the library website. We highly suggest that you START your search at the CHSL homepage, regardless if you are on or off campus, to authenticate properly. Also note that some vendors do not support OpenAthens: see the VPN Only Resource guide for those platforms/vendors that still require VPN for access.
