RPA is ebrary Remote Patron Authorization, and is used on some ebrary sites for off-campus access as well as for signing in to personal ebrary accounts.
How to know if your ebrary site uses RPA:
- If your ebrary site sign-in screen does not say “Please sign in to your personal ebrary account” at the top, but does direct you to firstname.lastname@example.org if there are sign in problems, it’s likely RPA.
Known issues with RPA when used with the browser IE 10:
- On some systems, once you sign in, it will not show that you are signed in. Try clicking on the “Sign In” link again – it may then show you as signed in.
