What login options are available for patrons of a library with a Public Library subscription?

EZProxy Authentication
If a user is logged into your EZProxy system (either within the library or offsite) and clicks the EZProxy link to Story Box Library, they will automatically be logged in to SBL. EZProxy links need to create a common session with our website, not just refer the user - the format to use usually looks like this: https://storyboxlibrary-com-au.ezproxy.rest.of.url.au/.

IP Address Recognition
If a user visits https://storyboxlibrary.com.au/libraries (and only that page) from one of the IP addresses you have supplied, your library name will be displayed with a barcode field. The user enters their barcode to log onto the site.

Referring Domain Recognition
If a user clicks a link to https://storyboxlibrary.com.au/libraries (and only that page) from a webpage on one of the domains you have supplied, your library name will be displayed with a barcode field. The user enters their barcode to log onto the site.

Website login
If a user just types in storyboxlibrary.com.au and isn't on one of your IP addresses in our system, they will need to choose Log In > Library Barcode Login > pick your library's name from the dropdown box and enter their barcode.


You are welcome to use any combination of these methods with your Story Box Library Public Library subscription. If you would like to set up or change any of your details for these settings, please contact us.
