How Does a Group Subscription Work?

A Commons group subscription provides your faculty and staff access to the most valuable educational and leadership content. With a group subscription, your institution can choose from several options that include:

Institutional Access

Users register using a unique URL that has been established for the institution or organization. Once registered, users have full access to the library.

IP-Authenticated Access

This optional access method allows users to connect without having to create an account or register. Campus administrators supply Magna with the IP address information, and once in place, users could connect automatically from any address in the specified range.
