Hi Ross,

(I'm sure I have plenty of better things to do, right now, than try this
out, but...)

I just tried the preview link, selected LSE as my home-org, and reached
the auth.athensams.net login asking for my Athens username/password.  

(I tried pretending to be from Cardiff, and got their IdP; ...and from
UCL, and got an EZProxy server)

Do we need to ask you to switch us to using FAM/Shib for Zetoc?  

(This begs the question, for my LSE Library colleagues, of whether there
are any other UK Federation fully-enabled resources for which we still
think Athens is required, but could switch too???  I know they are
monitoring the list of "at risk" resources, and so the situation may be
better than they think.)

John
