We are currently experiencing some problems with Find it @ Aston as a result of some changes made by our supplier, EBSCO.  We are currently working with them and IT services to resolve this problem.  In the meantime you should be able to get round this error by doing the following:

1. Do your search in Library SmartSearch and then click on the Find it @ Aston button

2. If you get the error message look at the bottom left of the screen and click on the link saying Shibboleth login

3. On the next screen select UK Higher Education from the drop down list

4. Select Aston University OpenAthens from the list of institutions

5. Log in with your Aston username and password.  You should then be able to view the details of where the journals can be found in the Find it @ Aston window and click on the relevant link to get access to full text.


If you follow the above and are still having problems please email with the details and we will investigate further
