How do I access the e-resources?

On Sunday 17 January 2021 we completed our migration to OpenAthens, an access management platform, which will you will use to:

  • access your JKM/I-Share account, which will allow you to request hardcopy materials from the JKM Library and the other 88 libraries of the I-Share consortium, check due dates, renew materials, etc.; and
  • access e-resources such as the Atla Religion Database with AtlaSerials, Old and New Testament Abstracts, Academic Search Complete, JSTOR, Ministry Matters™, as well as the thousands of e-books to which we provide access.

You should have received an email from noreply@openathens.net with the subject 'OpenAthens account for the JKM Library - action required.' If you don't receive the email, please check your junk/spam email folder before contacting us at ask@jkmlibrary.org. Here's what the email will look like:

An account in the OpenAthens platform has been created for you. You'll use your OpenAthens account for accessing the resources of the JKM Library and I-Share consortium.

Temporary username: jkmlib29967000000000

Please click on or copy the following link into a web browser to activate your account: https://login.openathens.net/activateaccount?username=29967000000000

On the activation page, create a password that must be: 1) fairly complex; 2) between 8 and 20 characters long; 3) a mixture of letters and non-letters; 4) without sequential numbers; and, 4) case-sensitive. At busy times it may be a few minutes before this link will work. Once your account is activated, the address to which this email was sent (for most JKM users their @lstc.edu, @mccormick.edu or @go.mccormick.edu email address) becomes your permanent username.

You can access your OpenAthens account here by clicking on the 'Sign in' link in the upper-right hand corner and then clicking on the OpenAthens link and inputting your credentials.
