In the process of adding a new Librarian account, an account type should be selected.
There are four default Librarian types on the LibCentral administrative platform:
- Head Librarian – grants complete authority on the platform and over other Librarians.
- MARC only – the permission to amend title visibility and access all reports available on the platform.
- Ordering only – the permission allows adding to cart, placing orders, creating and amending lists, updating title visibility and adding a fund code.
- View only – the permission to only amend the visibility of a title on the platform
All the above can be amended by accessing Home » Users » Librarian Permissions, clicking on the “Permission ID”, adjusting privileges and clicking the “Save” button.
While it is not mandatory to insert one of each permission in your Lib Central platform, it is recommended that at least one Librarian would be nominated as a Head Librarian.
Alternatively, Libraries would be able to create custom Librarian Permissions, by accessing Home » Users » Librarian Permissions and clicking on “Add Permission”.
