Why should I sign in to OpenAthens when using OneSearch, PubMed, or Google Scholar?

Although you are able to search these resources without signing into OpenAthens, by signing in you will be recognized as an FAU user and custom features will be available:

  • OneSearch and Google Scholar results will display citation counts from Web of Science.
  • PubMed and Google Scholar results will link directly to FAU subscribed resources via the Find it @ FAU link.

Please note that if you are already on campus, you will also have access to these custom features.

If you are already signed into OpenAthens and remain in the same browser, you will remain authenticated when navigating to these databases. You can also find the links on the FAU Libraries' Databases page.
