Manage Library Managers

There are 3 types of manager accounts on Libib Pro:
  1. Owner
    The owner is creator of the account and a super-admin. They have full control over the site.
    There can only be one account owner.When an owner deletes their account, billing will end (no new charges will occur), and all accounts underneath are removed from Libib as well.
  2. Admin
    An admin has full access to all libraries.

    ADMINS CAN ADMINS CANNOT
    • Add/edit/delete libraries
    • Access all libraries
    • Lend items in all libraries
    • Add/edit/view/delete all items
    • Add/edit/view/delete all patrons
    • Publish all libraries on their site
    • Change published library options on their site
    • Allow patron holds on their site
    • Add/edit/delete managers
    • Change billing
    • Change lending settings
  3. Basic
    A basic manager must be manually assigned (by the account owner) to the libraries they should have access to. The basic user will only be able to add/edit items in the libraries that they have access to. Additionally, a basic manager’s public page will only aggregate the published libraries that they have access to.

    BASIC MANAGERS CAN BASIC MANAGERS CANNOT
    • Access libraries (explicitly granted by Owner)
    • Edit library names
    • Lend items in their libraries
    • Add/edit/view/delete items in their libraries
    • Add/edit/view/delete all patrons
    • Publish their libraries on their site
    • Change published library options on their site
    • Allow patron holds on their site
    • Add/delete libraries
    • Add/edit/delete managers
    • Change billing
    • Change lending settings
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 library 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.
