Ipswich, MA — June 24, 2022. EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) is partnering with Clever, the most widely-used single sign-on (SSO) portal for schools in the United States. This partnership serves as a solution for schools looking to streamline access to their EBSCO resources for students and teachers.
Clever provides school districts with a single portal for their digital learning tools, where students and teachers have seamless access, eliminating the need to remember unique usernames and passwords for each tool.
With this agreement, schools using EBSCO Discovery Service, EBSCOhost, EBSCO Reference Centers, EBSCO eBooksTM, ExploraTM, Flipster and NoveList will have single sign-on access through the Clever platform. Schools can configure Clever to offer access to EBSCO resources for students at either the district or school level with their existing, school-issued login credentials. Schools will also have the option to enable MyEBSCO accounts for all users without exchange of personally identifiable information, to ensure the privacy needs for young researchers are met.
EBSCO Information Services, Senior Vice President of Product Management, Sara Earley says that schools nationwide offer EBSCO resources to students and teachers to enhance their curriculum and learning experience. "This partnership with Clever will expand on our current offerings by improving student and staff's user experience with readily accessible, digital content via single sign-on technology."
Clever Chief Executive Officer Trish Sparks says that EBSCO is known for its variety of carefully curated digital learning resources designed for K-12 students. "We're thrilled to welcome EBSCO to the Clever platform and make these resources more accessible than ever to teachers and learners everywhere."
The full K-12 collection of digital resources from EBSCO will be available on the Clever platform in July 2022.
