Use electronic resources at home – with Athens

A reminder that you can access most of Swansea University’s LIS subscribed electronic resources from your PC at home.  But first you must set an “Athens” cookie on your PC.  This will only take a minute and you should only have to set the cookie once.

Go to and follow the instructions. 

Now you’re ready to access electronic journals and databases on and off-campus.

When asked for your Athens username and password, enter your Open Access username (student number)and password.
