There is now a new Athens system at Swansea University for accessing Athens protected resources. Students can now use their Library and Information Services open access computer account to access Athens protected resources.
Staff will continue to use Athens accounts that begin "swa9..." for now though these accounts will eventually be phased out.
Athens users must: keep the Athens account confidential and not permit
any third party to use it;
The username and password for students is the same as the one you use to log
on to a Library and Information Services computer or e-mail via the Internet
or Blackboard. You will need to have the cookie activated on your computer.
If you are a student who is off-campus, using a computer at home, you will need to set a cookie on your computer by clicking here. You will be on a new page. Click "Go" and then log in.
The cookie can be removed from your computer by clicking here.
If you are a member of staff Athens accounts that begin with "swa..." can
still be used.
New staff should contact their branch library, including the Information Desk (tel: 01792 295697) at the Library and Information Centre or their Library and Information Services Subject Team.
If you are a member of staff and you do not know your Athens password, please contact your branch library or the Library and Information Centre Information Desk (tel: 01792 295697) or your Library and Information Services Subject Team.
