    Getting to register
  • Click on Register
    Click on register
  • This will take you to the registration screen. Enter your details. You will need to think of a username and password for yourself. Your preferred name is either just your first name, or a nickname.
    The registration interface
  • You must copy the two words in the black bubbles into the box below. This is to try and prevent spammers signing up to the database and assists with the digitisation of books and manuscripts.
  • Click on 'Register your account'.
  • Once registered you will receive an email asking you to activate your account. Click on the link in the email.
  • Once you have activated your account you will be able to log in. To do this, click on the Database tab at the top of the screen and click on log in in the blue box.
