How do I add a second person to my profile?

The Regional Librarian in our 2 librarian College wants her name & contact info to be placed with my profile. How do I do this?

Well, there are a few options available for adding additional profile info:

  • Create a profile for multiple people:
    You can edit your profile to include their name and information along with yours. There are a bunch of folks out there who do just that: it's their login, but multiple names are listed.
    (Or you can create a second account with both of your login you have 1 with just your info, and 1 with both. Whatever you need...)
  • Create an account for them & add their profile to all/any appropriate guides:
    Since you can create as many accounts as you want/need in your system, you can create an account for them and then add their profile to guides either by making them a co-owner of the guide or by using the User Profile box. That way, both profiles will appear.
  • If you just need their contact info on some guides...
    If there are only a few guides where you need their contact info in addition to yours, you can either follow the 2nd option and create an account for them (or a combined profile account for the two of you)/add it to the appropriate guides, OR you can just edit your profile box on those pages/guides to include their information. That way you have only your info where needed and both where needed.
