As a researcher if you live in Wales, or work in Wales. You can join the
National Library of Wales on-line as a researcher and can then have an
ATHENS password issued by them to access their electronic resources and
they do have a lot.

Subject: Re: Alternative to Athens

Athens is only an authentication service, ie it controls access
dependent on your subscriptions, memberships and rights. Other
contributors have drawn parallels with TV channels.

What you need to do, is explore your rights, eg (in no particular order)

- local library - many do interlibrary loans and e access if you live or
work in a county.

- university alumni memberships - some ejournals allow alumni access,
and some universities offer some access to alumni

- open access. There are many open access journals and a number of web
sites that offer open access.

- British Library. Worth checking what you can get as a 'reader'.

- your job / company may have a library/information service and access.

- information / library services offered via professional associations. 

- google scholar - we recommend this to our students.

But at the end of the day, as other correspondants have said, I am sure
it is difficult if you do not have an academic affiliation. And do be
clear, academic libraries all have different subscriptions/services.
However, wanting 'Athens access' is meaningless. It may not give you any
of the resources you want. You will need to check what resources any
membership will give you access to. Jane
