Associated users is an “off campus” access method where patrons get access to your content by logging in to SpringerLink with their Springer Nature account.
You can see and download a list of all associated users, and manually invite and remove users, via the Access page on the Librarian Portal.
Users can also be associated with your organization without manual work by you. You can turn on and off this functionality on the Access page in the Librarian Portal. When turned on an association will be created if a person is using an IP address from your ranges when they sign up for a new Springer Nature account via SpringerLink.
