HeinOnline – off-campus authentication now via Shibboleth

Off-campus authentication to the HeinOnline database is now by university username and password (using Shibboleth). Links and prompts in eSearch and SFX have been updated accordingly. Implementation decisions by HeinOnline mean that Athens based authentication to HeinOnline is no longer available to Nottingham Trent University staff and students, despite the existence of an Athens login option in the HeinOnline interface. Off-campus customers accessing HeinOnline through eSearch will be directed to the appropriate Shibboleth login screen.

More detailed information about the switchover, including a walkthrough to Shibboleth authentication in the native interface of HeinOnline has been added to the eServices Support wiki.
