Lean Library, a SAGE Publishing company, has announced a partnership with OpenAthens, an identity and access management software company, to support libraries accessing content using single-sign on authentication. This partnership expands Lean Library’s current program of supporting libraries with user-focused access to digital content. Lean Library brings library services directly into a patron’s workflow via their web browser using a browser plugin. In the past year, the company has expanded its three core products, Library Access, Library Assist, and Library Alternatives, to better support ebooks and scholarly literature. The company was acquired by SAGE in 2018. OpenAthens makes it easy for people to access the knowledge they want, when they want it, by removing the need to remember multiple user names and passwords and supporting off-site access. OpenAthens seamlessly slots into existing systems, such as Lean Library, to provide an optimal user experience.
