There are two types of accounts in FDLP eXchange: library administrators and library users.

Library users can enter items into the eXchange, but those items must be reviewed and approved by a library administrator before they can be sent for regional review.

Library administrators can review these items by selecting “Approve Items for Submission” under the Library Account tab.

The library administrator will see all items that have been entered by library users and can submit them to the regional for review, edit them, or delete them.

exchange tip 2.3

It is important to remember that items entered by library users are not sent for regional review until they have been submitted by a library administrator. Library administrators should check their queue regularly to be sure that they do not have items pending review.

Library administrators can set up library user accounts for staff who will be entering items into the eXchange but who do not have the authority to submit to the regional. Examples of users could be student workers, volunteers, or any staff member who needs occasional access but does not bear primary responsibility for disposition processes in your library.

During implementation, library administrator accounts were established for all coordinators as listed in the Federal Depository Library Directory on April 2, 2018. A coordinator can request that other staff members be added as administrators by contacting [email protected]. Please note that the request must come from the Depository Coordinator.
