If attendees would like to successfully complete all the guided exercises, they should have all the roles below. We will have a session on creating profiles, which could allow attendees to create roles at the session, if desired.
To Participate in User Profiles Session:
In addition to the above roles, campuses should have vendors that they can use to order books, e-books, and electronic collections. There will be assistance during the guided exercise session if you haven't set up vendors, but it's highly recommended to have vendors established before attending the in-person training session. See the Related Recordings and Documentation section below for a recording on how to set up vendors.
