How to register as a library administrator

If you do not yet have an account for Quotus Publishing, you can set one up here – it is free, of course. Once you have registered, inform us at about the institution you request administration rights for. We will then set up your administration rights.

As an administrator, you will be able to:

  • Download usage reports
  • Check your institution’s IP address range
  • Check the list of library administrators registered for your institution


Quotus Publishing offers the following authentication options:

  • IP address – the standard process for institutions
  • Username/password – an alternative e.g. for membership organizations or for staff working outside their institution’s IP range.
    (Individual users will be associated with their institution, und thus share the same access rights after login in.)
  • We are working to implement Shibboleth authentication in the course of 2015.

In order to check your institution’s IP range, sign in with your username and password, go to “Admin” and select your institution.
