We no longer use Athens authentication to log into electronic resources. You should be able to access the majority of our electronic resources without having to login or by using your Northumbria username and password if you are on- campus. If you are off-campus you can access most of our electronic resources by using Simply Web.

Please check the Library Resources Password List for details of the username and password you will need to access a particular resource - you may need to enter your University username and password in order to view the password list. Also please see the link below for a guide to logging in.

When accessing resources please be aware that you may need to select a link to activate the login box for you to use your Northumbria Username and Password. Look out for UK Federation, Shibboleth, Institutional Login or Log in at your home organisation. You may then see a WAYF (Where Are You From?) drop down list from which you should choose Northumbria University.

To access resources when off campus please see the FAQ 'How can I access my work off campus?'
