Step 1: Sending an invitation to the user you want to associate with your institution account:
- The registered administrator login to Springer Nature Librarian Portal
- On the left-hand panel, go to ‘Access’, 'Other access methods'.
You will see 'Associated users':
- Enter the email address(es) and select an end date, then click ‘Invite users’.
- An email to 'Get access' will be sent to the email address(es) you entered.
Step 2: Receiving an invitation email (sent in step 1).
Click on 'Get access' in the email and do one of the following:
If you are already logged in to your SpringerLink account: your account will be automatically associated – no need to do anything further.
If you are not currently logged in: you will be prompted to either log in or create a new account:
If you have an existing account: simply log in and you will then be automatically associated, as above.
If you do not have an account: simply sign up for one, once completed it will automatically be associated.
Once a new user has been associated they will (upon logging into their account) be able to access all of your organisation's subscribed content.
