If an owner needs to add more managers than available, visit billing to increase max managers allowed.

Once added, a new manager will receive a welcome email which instructs them how to login to the system. They will visit https://www.libib.com/login and use their email and temp password.

Should a manager forget their password, or need to reset it, they can do so at: https://www.libib.com/forgot-password

Managers can also be added through our REST API. Generally some knowledge of programming is required to use this approach.
