How to define user ids and passwords?

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.


Question: How do I distinguish between different types of system users? I would like to have 2 or 3 people who can make any kinds of changes and then 5 or 6 people who can only check books in and out and search for books, but not modify records.

Question: One last question. I can create an admin id and password and everything works. I do not seem to be able to create search, data entry or check in/out IDs. It lets me type it in (when I hit change) but does not store it. Is this only because I am using a 30 day test version?

Answer: Our trial version is fully functional; please review instructions and your logins and passwords should work for the main program and all library modules.
