It would be really handy if I could tell Kopernio that I'm affiliated with multiple universities.

This is my primary frustration with trying to access research papers at the moment and would be incredibly useful - it would save me from having to try each login in turn.

I just downloaded Kopernio today and the first thing I looked for was an option to add a second university. My alma mater continues to provide access to many subscriptions that my current university does not.

you can install another web broswer on your pc. if you have been using chrome, try firefox, to which you are going to add another kopernio plugin. then register a different account with your alma mater univ. in this way you will use two browsers with two univs' kopernios.

I suspect that there are a lot of researchers that have access to their current university library as well as their alma mater's library. I have attended several universities and have remote access to three, each with their own variety of databases. Additionally, I work for one university and go to school at a second. So, In my opinion, the option to access multiple libraries would be a powerful option.

This would be a very important feature for me, too. I have affiliations with three institutions with very different journal subscription coverages -- it would be great if Kopernio could handle all this for me.
