Set up default account privileges

Use the Account Privileges screen to set the default access privileges to the local Knowledge Base for new institutions that join your group. This default can be changed as needed for each new institution.

 Note: 

  • Institution administrators can set a lower access privilege for their librarian accounts but cannot set a higher privilege than the default set for their institution account.
  • Access privileges to the global Knowledge Base are set by the global group administrator (Library of Congress).

  1. Log on to QuestionPoint using your group administrator authorization number.
  2. Select Administration in the Select Service drop-down menu.
  3. Click Subscription Group > Accounts.
  4. On the Search Institutions screen, click Account Privileges.
  5. Use the radio buttons to select the highest access privilege you wish to grant to new institution and librarian accounts in your group.
