TMC Library electronic resources are accessed with the OpenAthens system. More detailed information on this system can be found in our OpenAthens LibGuide.

OpenAthens is a user authentication and e-resources access system that acts as your gateway to electronic resources licensed by The TMC Library. From the user’s point of view, your right to access full text is validated on the resource side by using your institutional login.

BCM, UTH and MD Anderson users do not need to register for OpenAthens.

Users from HCC-Coleman, PVAMU College of Nursing, TSU College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, UH College of Optometry and UH College of Pharmacy users will need to complete this registration form:

Once you have registered, you will be notified to activate your account in about 2 business days. You need to have a TMC Library card number and an e-mail account issued by your institution first.

You must be affiliated with a Texas Medical Center institution to register. Being a registered user of the TMC Library does not automatically entitle you to full access of resources.

For more information on which level of access your institution has, please check this page:

If you have questions about this process, please contact the Circulation Desk at 713.799.7146.
