5 August 2009
From today (5th August) access to UKBORDERS will only be available via the UK Access Management Federation (UKAMF) as a single login route, replacing the previous dual options login. Athens login will no longer be available.
For those not familiar with the UK federation login process, this single login will present users with a list of organisations which have signed up to the UK Access Management Federation, from which users will select their own organisation and log in with the usual username and password for their organisation.
This change will have no significant effect for most users. However, there are some organisations which have not joined the UK federation and so will not appear in the organisation list. If users cannot find their organisation in the list they should, in the first instance, contact their Computing Services Support for assistance. If users still feel there may be a problem they can contact the Census Programme at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure a smooth transition process, users should check their personal details by logging in to MyCensus at census.ac.uk as soon as possible.
