Customizing your LibApps profile and account settings
Your LibApps account information (accessed from My Account on the command bar of the LibApps dashboard) is used to log into all Springshare tools licensed by your institution (LibGuides, LibAnswers, etc.) where you've been given access.
Your LibApps profile is used primarily for adding content to your profile box and page in LibGuides, though certain elements like the profile image are used in other tools where you have access. Additional customizations may be possible in the various other apps where profiles are used (LibCal, etc.).
From the My Account page, you can make changes to the email address, password, and name for your account; along with being able to see a summary of your account permissions (what tools you have access to and what ones you don't).
Additionally, from here you can also customize your title, nickname, email signature, and newsletter subscription preferences.
