Essential Evidence Plus
Liz recommended that the following be put in the Reference blog in case the questions come up at the Reference Desk. Essential Evidence Plus requires that patrons register their desk-top application and PDA every year. The instructions that EEP provides are not terribly clear, but it does appear that if you have downloaded the automatic updater, then all the patron needs are the passwords listed below. The URL below does take the user to a more detailed set of instructions. If I have done this right, here is a copy of the instructions that can be printed out: Download file. Also, Jim is the most familiar with working with EEP and the PDAs, so if there are problems, refer patrons to him.
"This is a reminder that all University of Minnesota Libraries's users must re-register Essential Evidence Plus on their Pocket PC, and Palm OS by next week, if they have not already, or the application will freeze when your subscription rolls into your new account.
INFORMATION ON RE-REGISTRATION
As you may remember, registering Essential Evidence Plus is an annual event that is associated with your institution's expiration date. If your users have re-registered since you renewed your subscription to Essential Evidence Plus, the product will function for another year on their respective devices. However, if the user has NOT registered since last year, they will need to register again so the new code will reflect your institution's new expiration date.
Attached is a document that you can send to your users to help communicate this information.
Alternatively, you can use the feature on your client administrative page that allows you to email everyone from your organization that is registered and reference the following link:
Usernames and passwords are also changed annually. In one week your old username and password, uminnlib and poem, will be disabled and only your new username and password, minnesotalib and EEPlus, will continue to work. Please take the time now to notify your users of this change."
