When you log on for the first time, a prompt box will appear with a link to the IS Policies and Regulations. Please take time to read them.
To log on you will need your username and password. Your student ID card provides all the information you need.
The format for your username is worked out as follows:
The format for your password is your date of birth
Your password must be at least six characters long. A combination of numbers and letters will make your password more secure
Most of the online eresources are accessed busing your University username and password. (The same one you use for accessing Blackboard, Pebblepad and University email).
If you are a Staffordshire University APIIT partner student, please note that access to Online Library E-Resources is different.
Please login via https://auth.athensams.net/my/ (your username will begin with the letters ‘STA’). If you have forgotten your username you will need to contact your local administrator within your institution.
Do not attempt to login via Staffordshire University webpages, as this will not work.
Please note that there will be instances where full text coverage is not available for things like e-journal articles. This is beyond our control.
For further information, we recommend that you contact your local administrator in the first instance.
