Using the library
Athens username and password
Many databases require an Athens account to access. To retrieve your Athens username and password log in to Learn and select the Athens password link under 'Student Resources' or Staff Resources'. Alternatively you can ask at the Library help desk. You will need to show your University ID card. Staff may also contact IT Services for their Athens account details. You can change your Athens password via the Athens website.
Important Note: We are currently in the process of removing Athens for accessing online resources and moving to a Single Sign-On system. See the latest updates on the Library news page. If you have any problems accessing online resources during the transition please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that users of online resources are expected to abide by the University's IT Acceptable Use Policy and adhere to the Copyright, Design and Patents Act 1988.
