The Library is currently working with IT Services to remove Athens authentication for accessing online resources and moving to Single Sign-On using your University username and password. This means that when you access resources that previously required your Athens username and password, you will be taken to a University sign on page and prompted to enter your University username and password.
Some resources have already switched including Box of Broadcasts and ProQuest resources. Over the course of the next few months we will be continuing to switch other online resources to Single Sign-On. In most cases you should notice no difference when accessing resources on campus. While we are in a transition phase, we recommend that you use the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client to access resources off campus.
We will update the list of resources that are changing on this post as they make the switch. If you have any queries or experience any issues with logging in to resources during the changeover please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The following resources have made the transition:
- Box of Broadcasts (BoB)
- Lexis Law
- Gale Resources, including many newspaper archives listed here: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/services/library/students/subjectguides/newspapers/
- ProQuest Resources, including ASSIA, DAAI, ERIC, IBSS, LISA, and Vogue.
