Librarian Portal

The Springer Nature Librarian Portal provides librarians and administrators with a central location to manage their Springer Nature licensed content.

We have developed the Librarian Portal in order to provide administrators with a simple solution for managing users, accessing title lists and monitoring usage statistics across both SpringerLink and licensed content.
