All Athens access to our e-resources ceased with effect from 1 August 2009.
Most of our e-resources have now been set up with UK Federation access (also known as Shibboleth), however you may experience problems if you have been using the Athens route or if the resource is not yet set up with UK Federation access.
Several major publishers are still not ready to switch over to UK Federation and these e-resources can be accessed off-site via the Virtual Private Network (VPN), which you can set up using these instructions.
A list of publications that have not switched to UK Federation and how they can be accessed can be found here: e-resources not yet switched to UK Federation access.
General information about logging in using UK Federation can be found here: UK Federation.
