Hi Eric,

We used the OPAC note in the patron record for this purpose, primarily
because off-campus access to databases is not the same for all our
registered users (student access vs. alumni access). We funded the
enhancement to add the OPAC note to the batch patron modification tool to
make this easier to maintain. It worked well for our purposes, but if
you're already using the OPAC note for something else it might not fit your

We have since implemented OpenAthens with the OpenAthens/Koha connector. It
is working very well for us, despite a few little hiccups.

Good luck,
