The Athens Access Management system provides users with single sign-on to numerous web-based services throughout the UK and overseas.
Athens was initially deployed in the higher education sector in 1996 and has firmly established itself as the de facto standard for secure access management to web-based services for the UK education and health sectors.
In December 2000, Athens was awarded the NHS Information Authority contract for Access Management Services for the National Library for Health (now NHS Evidence).

Access to all National Core Content resources is controlled by Athens. Athens accounts are provided through online self-registration
