After verifying your email address you will need to agree to the licences for each of the specific Digimap collections that you wish to use, this is done through the licence agreements page.

Agreeing to licences for Digimap Collections

  • Log in to Digimap, the Licence Agreements screen should automatically popup. If the Licence Agreements screen does not automatically appear you can bring it up by clicking on the Licence Agreements button at the top of the page.
  • Each collection has a separate licence agreement which can be viewed by expanding the box for each collection.
  • You should read the licence agreement carefully and only accept it if you agree to the terms of use for the collection. Links to printer friendly versions of each licence are also included. To accept the licence select the I Accept checkbox and select a purpose from the drop-down list of available options. If you intend to use the service for more than one purpose please select the main purpose for which you will be using it.
  • You can accept the licence agreements for as many collections as you wish at this stage. The Licence Agreements page displays all the collections to which Manchester Metropolitan subscribes. Once you are happy with your choices press the Confirm Selections button to move to the next screen.
  • A summary screen of your selections will be displayed. Press the Access more collections link if you wish to activate additional collections; select the Close window button if you do not wish to make any further changes.
  • You are now ready to start using Digimap. Access to the selected collections is immediate unless you select other as your purpose for accessing a collection. If you selected other the EDINA helpdesk may contact you for further information to verify your intended purpose.
  • Note: if the Licence Agreements button is not present on the Digimap homepage it means that you have already accepted all the licence agreements for Manchester Metropolitan subscribed collections.

 * Note: the email address that you enter does not need to be your institutional address, Gmail, Hotmail etc. are acceptable. However this should be an address that you regularly use as the verification link will be sent to the email address that you enter here.
