Off-Campus Access: Folders

This guide describes how to use OpenAthens, a single sign-on solution for off-campus access to the Booher Library's electronic resources.

Managing Folders

On-Campus Access

If you are on campus and begin search Seeker at a computer, whether personal or public, you are not required to log in. However, should you decide to save any of your searches or found resources you will need to login. Just click the Sign In option on the top menu:

You will get the Seminary Gmail login prompt. Once you log in, you will have access to your folder.

Merging

If you choose to accept the privacy policy (see above) and have a seamless user experience accessing your folder, but you had previously created a folder, you will need to merge folders. Merging will allow you to keep all the items you had previously gathered into your new folder.

This should be done off-campus so as to bypass the Seminary Gmail log in

Select Update My Account

Scroll down to Merge and click Get Started to start the process

Clicking on Get Started will take you the first Merge window that prompts you to sign into your previous account.

Once you're signed in you will be taken to the next Merge window that shows the old account to be merged to the new one:

By clicking on the Merge Account Data button the merge is completed. You will receive and immediate verification as well as an email:

All of your previously saved items should show up in your new folder whenever you log in to use Seeker.
