New and returning students can now access e-journals and databases by logging into the University Portal, Blackboard or the Library 'Athens login page' using your Student ID and Network/Blackboard password.

Members of staff should use their Staff number and Active Directory (or email) password.

Refworks Login

Refworks data from 'old style' personal accounts will not be available when you login to Athens using using your Network/Blackboard password. If existing Refworks data is important to you, check the Athens guide at: for information about migrating for your Refworks data.

Checking loans and online renewal

When accessing 'My Account' on the library catalogue students should use their B number with the same password used for accessing on campus PCs, Portal and Blackboard. Staff should use their E number with their standard Network/Blackboard password.

Important information

'Old Style' Athens personal accounts

'Old Style' Athens personal accounts, with usernames beginning 'uls', will continue to work for returning and members of staff. However, it is recommended that you begin to access Athens using your local University credentials rather than use your old Athens personal account.
