    Ulrichsweb: Administration Console -- Admin

    • Product: Ulrichs

    How do I configure the Ulrich's Administration Account in the Ulrichsweb Administration Console?

    This page is part of a larger set of documentation about using the Administration Console to configure your Ulrichsweb service.


    The Admin page in the Ulrichsweb Administration Console allows the Ulrichsweb administrator to perform the following operations:

    • Apply extended privileges to a My Ulrich's account to enable that user to monitor the number, size, and appropriateness of saved lists in your institution's account without the need to contact individual list owners. From the Ulrichsweb UI, this administrator will have the ability to view, edit, and delete all lists, even those that are read-only.

    • View, edit, and delete My Ulrich's accounts from the Admin page.

    Enabling Administrator Privileges

    Before a user can perform advanced actions in the Ulrichsweb UI, the user must be assigned the correct permissions. Only one person can have administrator privileges at a time.

    Before a user can become the administrator, the user must first set up a personalized My Ulrich's account on Ulrichsweb.

    To enable Administrator privileges:
    1. From the Administration Console, open the Admin page under Ulrichsweb.

    2. Select Edit in the upper-right corner.

    3. Type the email address for the administrator in the My Ulrich's Account Email box.

      The email address must be the same email address that the individual uses to access his or her personalized My Ulrich's account on Ulrichsweb.

    4. Select Save to activate your changes immediately. Otherwise, select Cancel to discard your changes.

    Removing Administrator Privileges

    Because only one person (email address) at a time can have administrator privileges, you must first remove permissions from the previous administrator.

    To remove administrator privileges:
    1. From the Administration Console, open the Admin page under Ulrichsweb.

    2. Select Edit.

    3. Remove the email address from the My Ulrich's Account Email box, or replace it with another email address.

    Managing Saved Lists

    After advanced privileges have been given to a user, only that user can perform the following actions on any user's saved lists: view, edit, or delete. For details on managing Lists in Ulrichsweb, see Ulrichsweb: Create and Use Lists.

    Instructions are also provided under the Manage Saved Lists section in the Administration Console.
