On November 21, 2016, bepress (the vendor of our eScholarship@UMMS system) released improvements to the login process to improve on system security.
The biggest difference is that the login page for Digital Commons has changed in appearance. The previous Digital Commons login page had two sections: “Login” on the left and “Create new account” on the right. The new login page has a single “Login” section, with a line below saying “Don’t have an account? Sign up.” See the screenshot of the new login page below.
For those of you with SelectedWorks accounts, these improvements will also make it easier to log in to Digital Commons and SelectedWorks at once, without having to log in separately on both sites (you will still need to log out separately on each site).
You will still be able to log in with your same email address/password combinations as before, and all user information such as papers you have written, papers you have reviewed, and administrator permissions will be maintained. Access to the Digital Commons Dashboard and the Author Dashboard will not be affected.
