UKDA service unavailable for users of Athens authentication between 10 a.m. and 12 noon on 6 July 2009

Article dated: 29-Jun-09

As part of the move to a single login process for all users, the UKDA will be removing Athens authenticated access on the UKDA web site for a short period on the morning of 6 July 2009.

Access will still be available to the vast majority of users, using their institutional login credentials, via the UK federation login option. This should be attempted whilst the Athens route is not available.

From 4 August 2009 all users will access UKDA services via a single login.
