New Athens logins created

The login for each learner who wants to use eBooks and other resources has been sent to their college email address. If they have any queries, then please ask their RBL facilitator, a member of library staff, or contact me directly on 7288,

This login gives all college learners access to academic journals and news; eBooks; paid for resources such as ‘Issues Online’.


The logins should be the college network username and password but with ‘cch’  at the beginning. For example, if a college login is sstudent2 / Pass94 then the Athens login is cchsstudent2 / cchPass94
