Help with your Shibboleth login

You’ll need a username and password to access many of the library’s journals, databases and ebooks. We use a system called Shibboleth to create these login details for you.

You’ll need to activate your Shibboleth account before you can access library services and your Moodle account (Moodle accounts are needed for students and teaching staff only). You’ll receive your username and activation link by email.

If you’re enrolled on a course or have paid for membership but haven’t received a Shibboleth login please email the library.

Security for logins

Shibboleth invalid login screenIf you make 10 invalid attempts when logging in with your Shibboleth username and password, you’ll get a message stating you’ll be unable to login for 5 minutes. While you’re waiting for this time to pass, you can still check your username and reset your password. Library staff are unable to shorten the amount of time you need to wait. If you continue to have problems, please email the library.
