How to Prepare: Consolidate Logins (optional)


Logging into the Polaris Staff Client is a two-step process. Staff need to log into the terminal server and then into the Staff Client. At this time, this requires two different sets of logins: the terminal server login and the Polaris login.

After additional testing, CCS has confirmed that we can consolidate logins for regular Staff Client users. That is, individual staff members who are required to use the Staff Client throughout the day at their own workstation may tie their terminal server and Polaris logins together in order to simplify the login process. These users can save their terminal server login credentials to reduce time spent rekeying login information.

This option would primarily apply to technical services staff who use the Staff Client daily at only one workstation. Once tied to a username in this way, a terminal server login is not available for use at multiple locations or with multiple users.

You will need to determine which usernames and terminal server logins should be tied together, and ensure you have sufficient remaining terminal server logins to share for rotating staff or other uses. Please have your library lead or IT staff contact Marcin Urbanski or email help@ccslib.org if you are interested in exploring this option at your library.
