Library membership in your Trove profile

Library membership in your Trove profile

Trove has two methods of identifying that you are a member of a particular library:

  1. If you are on-site at specific libraries Trove is able to automatically identify which library you are at; and
  2. Registered users of Trove are able to select the libraries that they are a member of in their user profile.

Once you have been identified as being a member of a library, Trove will provide access options based on this information. Selecting that you are a member of a particular library in Trove does not guarantee access to resources subscribed to by the selected library.

Enabling the 'In my libraries' search limit

In order to set up a list of libraries that you have access to, you must first login or sign up to Trove. You can then set up a personal list of libraries from your profile page.

  1. login to Trove
  2. click on the button to 'View user profile'
  3. click on the 'Libraries' tab
  4. type the name of your library into the search box and click search
  5. tick the box next to the name of your library in the results list

The library will then be added to your list of libraries. You can remove a library from the list by clicking on the small cross next to its name. To access this list at any time, click on your username at the top right of any screen. Then click the 'Libraries' tab.

Once you have set up the list of libraries you have access to, use the 'In my libraries' checkbox under the search form to find only items held in your libraries. Even if you do not use this checkbox to limit your search, Trove will now tell you which search results are found in your libraries if you are logged in.
