Administrator collaboration in a group containing two or more libraries

If your Subscription Group contains two or more libraries, the Subscription Group administrator and the Institution administrators work together to plan and coordinate group activities. Skip this section if your Subscription Group contains your library only.

Some setup tasks are done by the Subscription Group administrator and some by the Institution administrators. The Subscription Group administrator also does the Institution administrator tasks for his or her own library.

Some groups may decide that the Subscription Group administrator will assist the Institution administrators with some of their setup tasks.

Institution administrators can give permission in QuestionPoint for their Subscription Group administrator to help them with the following tasks:
