What is an Athens login?
Last Updated: Jul 26, 2019     Views: 1771

We do not use the Athens login at Northumbria University. When accessing online resources, if you are prompted for a user ID and password, you should usually use your University log in credentials. On some platforms, you may be able to use the site without logging in, but may be required to do so when you wish to access content.

Please be aware that in some cases you may need to click a link or button to login. Resource platforms may use different terms to indicate this, such as “Academic Sign In”, "Institutional Login", "UK Federation", "Shibboleth” or terms to that effect.

The Passwords to Resources page lists all of the platforms where University Library resources are available and whether a username and password is required to access content on that resource platform. It also tells you when a different credentials than your own username and password will be required.

Where off-campus access is noted as being via Simply Web, this means that the resource platform doesn’t support username and password access. Information to help you use Simply Web is available on the IT Support 365 page, under the WiFi and Remote Access section.
