Ingenta Connect Library Membership

Introducing Ingenta Library Membership - a new service which will enable you and your patrons to get more out of Ingenta Connect and personalise the site for your own institution.

Regular Ingenta Connect features - browsing, access to OA and subscribed content, IP authentication, single sign on via Shibboleth and Open Athens and COUNTER4 reporting - will continue to be available FREE for library members and non-members alike, but Membership will offer a range of premium features for an affordable annual fee.

These include cost savings of 50% on advertising your institution's courses on Ingenta Connect, and savings on the digitisation and dissemination of your rare library archives - a new service due shortly.

Can I still access content without joining, and can I cancel at any time?

Not being a member does not prevent your access to content - either content to which you have subscriber rights, or pay-per-view content you may wish to purchase. Mmebership brings a range of benefits which will increase eavery month, but if you wish you can cancel at any time by cancelling your direct debit and informing us your membership will cease the month after you notify us of cancellation. You will no longer have branding on the Ingenta Connect site, nor will you have the use of OpenAthens, Alerting or any other membership benefits.
