Your Athens username and password are the same as your University username and password, i.e. what you use to log on to iCity and Moodle*. When you are accessing electronic resources via the website, make sure you are logged in first - there is a blue 'sign in' button at the top of the page. If you are already logged in, this will say 'my account'.

if you see the screen below, ignore the left side of the screen and in the right hand part of the screen where it says 'Find Your Organisation', type in 'Birmingham City University' to be taken on to the normal login screen via iCity.  

If you have any problems accessing any of our online resources you can e-mail the e-library team at
