How do I create Backpacks for my users?

There are several ways to create Backpacks in MackinVIA:

  • Users can create their own Backpacks through self-registration.
  • You can create Backpacks for users within your MackinVIA Administrator account, either individually or through an import of user data.
  • You can send a file of user data to, and we will set up the Backpacks for you. Once setup is complete, any files containing user information can be returned if requested, and all copies in our possession will be destroyed.
  • We can work with you to automate Backpack creation through a free integration with your user management system or library catalog, also known as Backpack Authentication.
