Access to University e-resources off campus

Access to electronic resources off-campus changed from 1 August 2009.

The University completed the transition from ATHENS access to locally authenticated access via Shibboleth on the 1st August. Users will no longer be able to access a resource via the ATHENS alternative login route.

The recommended access route for electronic resources is via e-resources@cambridge (http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/electronicresources/) or, in the case of ejournals, ejournals@cambridge (http://sfx7.exlibrisgroup.com/cambridge/az) , which include the correct links.


Users off-campus should log in using the links provided by publishers on their web sites marked "Institutional login", "Log in via your home institution" or "Shibboleth", and login with their RAVEN password.


Further information on this change and contact details for enquiries can be found at http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/electronicresources/shibboleth.php

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
