NHS OpenAthens Accounts
NHS OpenAthens accounts are the means to access to a wide range of purchased e-resources, such as e-journals, e-books and databases. Our guides and training materials will help get you started, and we’re happy to provide face-to-face training.
- Register for an account (for a speedier registration process this is best carried out on an NHS PC, or with an NHS email account. If you register from outside the Trust or with a non NHS email your eligibility will need to be accessed and approved by an Athens Administrator. Please also take into account that you will require access to the email account you use to register, in order to receive and act upon an ‘activation’ link). If you are experiencing problems registering please contact the library and we will create an account with you. Our guide to OpenAthens Registration
