What is OpenAthens?
It is a username and password system that allows you to access and view selected online health resources from any computer with an internet connection.
Whittington Health Library administers OpenAthens accounts for Whittington Health, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, Islington CCG and Haringey CCG. For further information on training and one-to-one support in the use of NHS Athens resources please contact
The resources available through OpenAthens will vary depending on which institution you belong to.  So an NHS user will see different resources from a University user.
