What is OpenAthens?

OpenAthens provides secure access to CPTC GALILEO resources through single sign-on when users are off campus.

CPTC students, faculty, and staff will use their full CPTC email address and password to log into GALILEO versus using a password. 

GALILEO is still accessible on campus without having to log in.
