OpenAthens Conference 2019: Creating a seamless reading experience with OpenAthens and PressReader


Published on

Mark Ritchie, Director of libraries, PressReader

PressReader works with OpenAthens to build a seamless user experience, offering access to over 7,000 newspapers and magazines straight from the PressReader app. OpenAthens integrates well with the PressReader platform, giving students off-site access by logging in once using the same credentials they already use for other services at their institution. It’s one less thing to remember, and makes access easier than ever.

This presentation features real examples of how PressReader works with OpenAthens to solve the problems of institutions around the world to elevate the user experience. Because while content matters, so does the way you access it and your students want an easy way to read stories that matter to them.
