Remote Access: OpenAthens FAQ

Remote access is available to staff whose assigned offices are in the Palais des Nations (UNOG, UNCTAD, UNECE, etc.) or at UNHCR

Presenting OpenAthens

The Library uses OpenAthens to provide remote access to our electronic collections.

OpenAthens has been configured to work with Microsoft Azure Authentication, which means most staff (with exceptions for some such as those with emails like UNHCR & ILC colleagues) have automatic access!

UNHCR staff and ILC colleagues must sign in with Personal Accounts
To request a Personal Account please fill in the form here!

Azure Authentication is the same system you use when signing into MS Outlook in a web browser.
When signing into OpenAthens you will be re-directed to Azure sign in.
