OpenAthens authentication: Student email addresses

Please note: As a result of recent changes to student email addresses, students must now enter their email address as @ulster.ac.uk rather than @email.ulster.ac.uk when authenticating to OpenAthens resources (databases, e-journals, etc). If you need further advice about this change or are still experiencing difficulties, please contact Library Help.
