When you first access the system, you are a Guest user, which provides the ability to search the catalogue, but few other options.

To perform any administrative functions, you need to log in. Any user who wants to be able to save their own searches in the Search Portal, to see their account or to request material will also need to log in.

Depending on your particular installation, you may be automatically identified to the system (via Single Sign On) from your normal Windows login.



The login area is at the top right of the search screen:

  1. Click on [login]
