In June, the Online Library launched the new Single Sign-On which allows you to access all library resources using your Portal username and password. This is the same username and password you use to log into the VLE. This means that you no longer need an Athens account.
On the 31st December 2019, your Athens account expired and you now need to use your Portal username and password to access library resources.
SOAS students, you will continue to use Athens to access the Online Library. You cannot use your Portal password to access the Online Library.
Staff, including external staff, can also continue to use their Athens accounts.
If you are already logged in with Athens, open a different internet browser to try logging in with your Portal password.
