Digimap MasterMap update

MasterMap Download is now available again. However Topographic Layer orders are limited to 25sq.km and all orders may take longer than the advertised 2 days to process. Please be patient and do not resubmit your order. EDINA aims to restore full service this week. Further information will be posted when available.

Logging in to E-Resources

The University uses single-sign on to authenticate our students and provide access to our e-resources on and off campus. This has to be done via the portal. We do not use individual Athens usernames and passwords. After logging in to the portal.
Click on the Library & Computing tab
In the e-library channel click on the Electronic databases, electronic journals and e-books link
On the Library Databases page the e-resources are arranged alphabetically by title
Click on the letter of the alphabet for the resource you need along the top of the A-Z list or scroll down to the resource in the list. Alternatively you can click on the MyAthens link on the Library Databases page. This will also take you to the Athens A-Z list of resources. Just click on the name of the individual resource you want to access.
