Help:Logging in

This article provides instructions for logging in to Folgerpedia--welcome!

If you do not have a username and password, please email for permissions.

Qualified users include the following:

  • currently hold or are eligible for Folger reading privileges (e.g., postdoctoral scholars with privileges at our peer institutions), or
  • are or have been part of a Folger-sponsored program (e.g., performers associated with Folger productions), or
  • are current Folger staff or docents, and
  • have knowledge or materials that relate to any aspect of the Folger community’s interests.

Once you have permission to edit Folgerpedia you will be able to log in and edit. In order to access the site, login under “Account” in the top right-hand corner of the page, select “Login.” Then, enter your name in this format [FirstnameLastname] (no spaces) and your password. Now you should be logged in. To change your password from the randomly generated one, select the “Account” dropdown, which will now read “[FirstnameLastname].” Select “Preferences”—the first item at the top of the page is to change your password.

If you have trouble logging in, please email for assistance.

Once you are logged in and ready to start editing, please consult these two help guides to begin!
