Q. Ebsco is asking me to choose how to login

When I try to connect to articles on Ebsco from QuickSearch and Find it! I am seeing weird login screens off-campus.

We are so sorry you are having trouble with connecting to some Ebsco content from off-campus. 

You may experience an issue between Find it! and Ebsco and QuickSearch and Ebsco that is forcing our off-campus users to login a second time to Ebsco content. 

What you may see and how to log in

Depending on the link selected, you may see one of two login prompts when attempting to connect to Ebsco content.

If asked to choose, select View article on Ebscohost.

Choose view article on Ebscohost

If offered OpenAthens, choose that option.

Ebsco login page - choose OpenAthens

Choose your organization, University of Arkansas Libraries.

Choose your Organization - University of Arkansas Libraries

Choose to sign in through UARK

Sign in through UARK

You will then be directed through the familiar campus login page.

After entering your UARK email and password, you will (finally) be directed to the article on Ebsco. Thereafter in your search session, you should continue to stay authenticated and not have to log in again.

The first time you sign into Ebsco from an OpenAthens link you will see a privacy policy notice from Ebsco.
