Frequently Asked Questions


Which databases can I log into with my Athens password?

Our answer:

You can log into all of our databases with an Athens account, except for Project MUSE. To login with your Athens account, click on an item in the Summon search results and select OpenAthens. Or go to your programme gateway and click on the key next to the database you want to access.

If you are a SOAS student, you need an Athens account to access the Online Library. If you need one, please complete the Athens registration form.

If you are not a SOAS student, you can access all Online Library resources with your Portal username and password. You do not need an Athens account.
