JSTOR and other databases - change of off-campus access method

JSTOR and a number of other databases no longer use ATHENS for off-campus access.

To login from off-campus, you will now use the same University Username and Password that you use to access your e-mail.

Databases which no longer use ATHENS include:
  • Credo Reference
  • Emerald
  • Expanded Academic ASAP
  • Global Market Information Database
  • IngentaConnect journals
  • Literature Online
  • Oxford English Dictionary
  • ScienceDirect
  • SpringerLINK
  • Web of Knowledge
    and many others. You will continue to have access to all these databases, but they will no longer be listed on the list of resources that you see when you log in through ATHENS.

    ATHENS access will be completely phased out by the end of July, as explained in this earlier blog entry.

    Instead, your off-campus access route into all databases will be via the A-Z Databases page, or SAULCAT, or the E-Journals pages

    If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch.
