What is a shared library?
A Shared Library is a feature of ClickView that works in a similar fashion to your own school library.
Shared libraries are intended for larger organisations such as a Departments of Education, Diocese or Districts, where many schools fall under one head office. The library would typically be owned by the head office and administered there, and through a subscriber process, schools with permission, can view the library.
How is a shared library created?
Initially, a shared library starts life as a typical school library. As an administrator with access to Library editor, the initial creation and population of the library can be undertaken.
With the library created, the organisation Administrator can contact our friendly support team who will assist with adding subscribing schools.
How do I access shared library content?
School libraries can be found under the Libraries section on the Discover page within ClickView:
Clicking on the library folder, will allow you to navigate the structure of the library and find your schools content:
Who can contribute to a shared library?
The ability for users of ClickView within your school or subscriber schools to add content to the library, is controlled by a simple toggle to enable or disable the feature. As the Administrator of your shared library, you can choose whether requests from users within your school/s, can be approved or rejected, through the library requests feature.
If your organisation is interested in hosting a shared library, please contact our support team on firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll complete the initial setup for you.
