The time has come... bid farewell to ATHENS. Obviously, the preferred route to accessing QM's electronic resources when you're off campus is via Remote Access but not everyone has access to their own PC or laptop and of course there are those times when you are in internet cafe and you just have to print off that journal article but logging onto the Remote Access is not possible. This is where Shibboleth comes in.

For those of you who haven't heard, Shibboleth is the new ATHENS. It is an authentication system that is based on your network id so one less username and password to remember! It will give you access to most of the electronic resources that we subscribe to (please note a small number of resources are restricted to on campus access only).

We hope you find it as easy to follow as we do but click here if you need some pointers.
