Do I Need an Account?

All information within the IR is available without a user account. User accounts are generally reserved for people involved in adding and maintaining records within the repository. Scientific administrators, or persons typically assigned to maintain a laboratory's publications/data typically have an account and training. It you need records added or updated, contacting Katie McGuire is typically the easiest and faster way to get materials in the repository.
