OpenAthens is our primary way to allow access to electronic resources both on and off campus. When sharing a link to library resources by email, or in Canvas, be sure to use links accessed through the library's website. See Linking to Library Resources for more details.
On many publisher websites, you will see a Login button. Log in using the Institutional Login or OpenAthens Login (wording will vary by publisher), select Boston College from the institution list and login with your BC username and password. If you are asked to select a federation, please select OpenAthens Federation.
You must be a currently enrolled student, faculty, or staff member to sign in from off-campus.
