    Switching Between Institutions

    Translatable
    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/locationGo to institution pane from the persistent menu (see Persistent UI-ElementsThe Persistent Menu). The Change Institution field appears.

      The Alma home page of the member institution you selected opens.
    You can add a widget for the Alma home page that allows you to switch between member institutions. See List of WidgetsList of Widgets.
