FAQs for Libraries

How can your patrons access the upgraded content?

Patrons need to follow the current process. They need to login to the Lumos Program via the link you have placed on your library website. They should enter their library card number when prompted. In the next screen, they would be able to sign as they do now (simply login with their existing account).

Should our patrons STOP using the older version of the course?

Does your library need to do change anything to help patrons see the new content?

No changes are needed to the link you have on the site. However, we recommend that you communicate with them about the availability of the updated Lumos Database Program. It will help them get ready for the upcoming PARCC assessments.
