Users in a collaborative network may be assigned user accounts in multiple institutions in the network. When enabled, users can easily switch between member institutions for which they have a user account without having to change locations.
For collaborative networks that use single sign-on for user authentication, users can switch between member institutions without having to log in when switching between institutions.
To switch between institutions:
You must have an account in a member institution to log in to it.
This feature must be enabled and configured using the customer parameters display_consortia_urls and open_consortia_link_options; see Configuring Other Settings.
- Access the switch library/location pane from the persistent menu (see Persistent UI-Elements). The Change Institution drop-down list appears in the pane. Change Institution Link
- Select the member institution to which you want to log in. The Alma home page of the member institution you selected opens.
An administrator can also configure a widget for the Alma home page that allows you to switch between member institutions.
