The Discovery Service allows patrons to create their own accounts. This allows them to use customized services such as storing searches, downloading e-books, annotating texts and creating content alerts. User names and passwords are not managed by library staff, although staff can help in troubleshooting access or resetting passwords. Patrons should use their WMU email address for their Discovery Service Email as well as for their user names, which will make it easier for library staff to assist.
Keep in mind, having a personal account does not usually guarantee access to content found in the discovery service, which is usually dependent on being located on campus or authenticated through the proxy service.
