Q. What is Shibboleth?

Shibboleth is an orange griffin who allows Goldsmiths students and staff to access content - such as e-journals - securely from external websites.

If you are working off-campus you need to login to use our subscribed resources by finding the 'Login via Shibboleth' or 'Login via Institution' link (usually in the top-right of the webpage). You might see a list of countries to choose from (select UK) before a list of institutions from which you can select Goldsmiths.

At the Shibboleth log-in screen, you will need to enter your campus username and password to access the external website. We no longer use Athens logins at Goldsmiths.

Generally, if you are on-campus you won't need to login.
