Open Athens

Access Lab 2021

Access Lab is the place where librarians, publishers and library users discuss challenges and solutions around discovery and access to digital content and services.

This year’s conference theme ‘Thriving in the (un)unsual. Creativity. Agility. Pace’ reflects the challenges of the past year and what we need to do to move forward.

When bad user design becomes a barrier to content

OpenAthens studies student’s behaviour to improve our single sign-on products. We would like to share some of the findings with university presses and other publishers that provide digital content to the education and research sector. Our research into university students’ journey in the UK and the US can help publishers provide more relevant, flexible and timely content.
