NHS OpenAthens Account

OpenAthens is a secure log in system that gives you access to electronic resources including books, journals and databases. 

All NHS staff are eligible to register for an NHS OpenAthens account.  

You may have previously had an OpenAthens account when you were studying at University; however, registering for an NHS OpenAthens account ensures that you can access all the electronic resources purchased by your organisation and also those purchased on a national basis.

In case you were wondering the name OpenAthens comes from the Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena.

If you need any help or want to find out more please contact your local library.
