In addition to a comprehensive collection of books and journals, the Library has a variety of authoritative electronic books and resources that you can use for as long as you need at home or anywhere else that you have internet access.
Many of these resources require an Athens username and password.
Ask at the Library desk for an Athens copyright form. Please read this carefully and complete the information requested, then return this to a member of Library staff.
You will then receive an information leaflet explaining how to complete registration on the Athens website. This requires a valid email address.
Please note that although you need to register on a library PC, you can use Athens on any other PC - on or off campus - after the registration process is complete.
Log in to a Library PC and go to http://www.openathens.net in Internet Explorer.
Select the link Login to MyAthens from the options shown, and on the next page, enter the printed username and password from your information leaflet.
After this, you will be prompted to complete the self-registration form and choose your own unique username and password. Click on 'submit' when you have entered all of the information.
