Improved off-site access to subscribed to Lyell content for faculty - CASA announcement

In response to many universities and institutions enforcing a policy encouraging students and staff to work remotely, HighWire, working with Google Scholar, has made an extension to the time-to-live for CASA (Campus Activated Subscriber Access) tokens. These tokens allow for off-campus access to subscribed materials for faculty and staff who find themselves working off-campus.

As of 11 March 2020, CASA tokens are set to live for 120 days after the user has generated them. This will allow authorised staff and students to access their subscribed journals and books until (at least) mid-July, when we can re-evaluate the situation for students and researchers checking in with their home institution networks. This action was taken in order to protect the usage of HighWire-hosted journals and books so as to limit reductions in online usage that might possibly occur and impact our publishing partners. Please read HighWire's CASA FAQs.
