If you try to access electronic resources without going through the library website, you can also follow the following steps:

1. Look for a login link that says "Shibboleth", "Login via your Institution", "Federated login" or "Alternative login".

The link may also be labelled in other ways but do not use the "Athens" or "Open Athens" links.


2. You may then need to select "UK Access Management Federation" or "UK Federation" from the drop down menu. Depending on the eResource you are trying to access, this step may not be necessary. 



3. Then look for "Manchester Metropolitan University" as the name of the Institution


4. You should then see the Manchester Metropolitan University Login page and you can enter your university authentication credentials here
