Christian Günther / H+H Software GmbH



HAN – Hidden Automatic Navigator is a management software does away with a lot of issues that become apparent when having to manage and giving access to eJournals:

  • HAN provides clientless off-campus access to eJournals for all authorised users! From everywhere, by any type of browser or operating system with no parameters to be set on client side

  • HAN provides detailed usage statistics - uniform across all providers, COUNTER-compatible, user independant

  • HAN provides license management – instead of buying licenses campuswide buy only those numbers you need by easily specifying the range of interested persons or departments

  • HAN keeps passwords hidden from users – when access to eJournals is given by passwords HAN keeps them away from the users by checking the users credentials and routing it to the desired Journal with a logon process hidden to the user.

In a nutshell:

  • HAN simplifies access

  • HAN saves

  • HAN enhances the security against unauthorised use

  • HAN provides detailed usage statistics

  • HAN manages the inventory and schedules subscription periods
