User portal

The user portal is the patron interface of Tipasa. In the user portal, patrons can create requests, see the status of requests they submitted, and access any electronic documents that have been delivered via Article Exchange, knowledge base, or open access links. If enabled, patrons can also cancel or renew their requests. See for more information. Patrons will need to sign in to access the user portal.

The user portal contains the request forms that you configure on the Patron Request Workforms screen in Service Configuration. You can also customize the look of the user portal in Service Configuration (My WorldCat.org > User Interface Options). For more information, see User Interface Options.

 Note for WMS libraries: Your patrons will have to sign into two different places to see all of their requests (holds and interlibrary loan requests). The user portal only contains information on interlibrary loan requests and is not the same as My Account.
