About Managing Backpacks

Print Topic

Backpack™ accounts help students store and manage eBooks and databases. With a Backpack, students can save their favorite digital resources in one place, check out and request Mackin-hosted resources, and store notes about eBooks and databases. As a MackinVIA administrator, you can manage Backpacks for students. Students can also create and edit their own Backpacks.

Backpack accounts are optional: MackinVIA administrators can choose to disable this feature by calling Mackin’s customer service 1-800-245-9540NOTE: If the Backpacks feature is disabled, Checkouts, Requests, Notebook and Favorites cannot be enabled, and the Backpack icon is not visible on the patron website.

To manage the Backpacks feature, first log into your MackinVIA Administrator account (https://www.mackinvia.com/Admin) with your Mackin.com email address and password.

Choose Users > Backpacks (make sure you select the correct VIA if there is more than one account).

From there, you can create individual or multiple backpacks, deactivate or edit backpacks.
