MYUFDC & MYDLOC
To set your myUFDC/myDLOC preferences, first log in. Once logged in, set your preferences by clicking on the "Edit my preferences link" or the "My Preferences" tab in myUFDC/myDLOC.
To set your general UFDC/DLOC preferences, click on the "Preferences" link in the gray bar at the bottom of every page. From the "Preferences" page, you can set Bandwidth and Language and you can change your settings at anytime. Bandwidth choices are Broadband or Low (Dial-up or a slow connection). You can choose between English, French or Spanish to search UFDC/DLOC.
The print icons are enabled at all times and do not require logged in. Clicking the Print button simply prints collection and search pages. For items, users can choose to print:
The Share button allows users to share the collection, item, and search using Facebook, Twitter, DIGG, StumbleUpon, Yahoo, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks, and Browser favorites.
The Send button allows users to send an email with the current collection, item, or search. The Send button is only active when users are logged in (users can log in using Gatorlink or myUFDC/myDLOC for those without Gatorlink accounts).
The Save/Add button requires users to log in. This button is either Save or Add depending on context. On search pages, the Save button allows users to save their searches. Users can access all of their saved searches from the main myUFDC page. On collection and item pages, the Add button allows users to Add collections to their personal homepages and can add items to bookshelves.
MYUFDC & MYDLOC Home
myUFDC/myDLOC Home is the first page after users log in, and it links to the user's bookshelves, saved searches, and collections.
