Question

Q: How do I logon to a database or ebook on the guest computers?

Answer

For SuperSearch and most databases that authenticate through OpenAthens

  1. Go to https://my.openathens.net/auth?entityID=https://idp.eduserv.org.uk/openathens
  2. Use the following credentials:
    • Username: kennesturgisguest NOTE - This username also works at the Johnson Library
    • Password: KSUlibrary1
  3. Open a new tab in the same browser. NOTE - Important step—so the system keeps you logged in
  4. Go to library.kennesaw.edu
  5. Search through SuperSearch or go to an individual database from the “Find a Database” page or “Databases by Subject & Type” page for access.

For any databases that authenticate with EZProxy (you don’t get the OpenAthens login page):

  1. Click on the database link from the “Find a Database” page or “Databases by Subject & Type” page.
  2. In the URL address bar at the top of the webpage, remove all of the EZProxy information before the address of the database.

For example in (https://login.proxy.kennesaw.edu/login?url=http://library.cqpress.com/scyb), take out “https://login.proxy.kennesaw.edu/login?url=”

This will leave http://library.cqpress.com/scyb which will bring you to CQ Supreme Court Yearbook.
