eduID replaces Onegini for guest Library users

Published on
May 21, 2020

The Onegini accounts for guest users are being replaced by eduID. Do you have a Onegini account? You need to migrate your Onegini account to eduID before 1 July 2020 to keep your digital Library services. Read in this article what you will need to do.

Why should I migrate?

As an external user of WUR Library, you have a Onegini account to access some digital library services. This account is a service from an external party, SURF. SURF has decided to replace all Onegini accounts with eduID accounts. Therefore, you need to migrate your Onegini account to an eduID account. After the migration you can start using your eduID account to log on to WUR Library.

If you don’t migrate to eduID*, you will lose access to your personal settings in MyLibrary and to your saved searches, loan history and items on loan information in WUR Library Search. * Please note that this does not apply to WUR students and staff. They can continue to login with their WUR credentials and don't need to migrate.

When do I have to migrate?

Per 1 July 2020, the Onegini service will stop. You need to migrate before 1 July 2020. After that date, you won’t be able to use your Onegini account anymore.

How do I migrate?

All Onegini users have been emailed about the migration. You can start the migration process via the link in the e-mail. If you do not have the email, you can find the migration page here.

Once the migration is complete, you can log on to the same Library services you are used to using eduID.

This manual will explain how to migrate in detail.
