This topic explains:

  • How to define main application user id and password?
  • How to define user id and password for all library modules (search, check in/out, data entry)?
  • How to modify user id and password?

By default, Handy Library Manager does not password protect Library Administrator or any Library Module. Anyone who has access to the computer could open and change your library data. To add security you might consider adding user ids or passwords.

All user ids and passwords are disabled. To activate all boxes you have to enter the current administrator's user id and password in the Login window:

  1. In the Options window click Users.
  2. Click Change to open the Login window.

  • Handy Library Management software is installed with blank user id and password. In the Login window click OK (do not enter anything).
  • Next time if you want to change any user id or password enter your current Administrator user id and password and then click OK.

  • Read confirmation message and click OK.

  1. Administrator: set user id and password to open main library application.
  2. Search Module: set user id and password to open search module (OPAC). If you want all library users to access the search module leave it blank.
  3. Data Entry Module: set user id and password to data entry module. If you want all library users to access the data entry module leave it blank.
  4. Check In/Out Module: set user id and password to open check in/out module. If you want all library users to access the check in, check out module leave it blank.
  5. Click Save to save changes.
  6. Close Options and restart application.

Enter Administrator user id and/or password to access library administrator program.
