    Switching Between Institutions

    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.
    1. Access the switch library/location pane from the persistent menu (see Persistent UI-Elements). The Change Institution drop-down list appears in the pane.

    2. 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.
