Updating User Information

From time to time, you may find it necessary to update user information such as your user name, password, email address -- even User Type and Area of Focus.

To update user information:

Select Update Profile from the options in the upper right-hand corner of your account.

  1. Update any of the fields in the box.

  2. To enter a read-only password, type the password in the Read-Only Password box. Read-only access allows you to share your database with colleagues or students on a read-only basis. They will be allowed to search, export and create bibliographies. They will not be able to edit references, import references or change folders.

  3. Click Save Profile to accept your changes.
