    Before editing a page, you must first log in to the LibreTexts with an account that has editing capabilities. If you do not have an account register at https://register.libretexts.org for an Instructor's account. Please remember to specify ONE library to use as your home library (content you create can be moved to other libraries) and provide a URL that shows your name as an instructor/teacher/faculty member. Once provided, sign in to a library by entering your credentials into the toolbar below the list of libraries. If you have forgotten your password, hover your cursor over the "door" symbol next to the sign in button and select to have a reset password link sent to you.

    If the bar is grey after you sign in (like above), you do not have editing capabilities; in that case, you can write info@libretexts.org to request your permissions to be updated. After you log in you should see a black bar

    Now you can navigate to your sandbox by pulling down the menu under your userID (TestBox in this case)

    Caution

    The SSO system is coupled to accept both google and microsoft authenticated networks so that if your campus is part of either, you can use your campus account to sign in. However, Microsoft provide additional freedoms to campuses to verify vendors (like LibreTexts) to access campus authentication.

    Below is what it looks like for an admin to “Consent on behalf of your organization”.

    Even though LibreTexts, Inc. is already verified with Microsoft, in this case it also has to verify with the local IT department of the campus. That can be a fast or slow process. If instant access is needed (and Google isn't an option), we can provide local authentication. Contact support@libretexts.org for help.
