» Changes to Your Account on Glamlife

As Glamlife continues to grow more personal – and as more online tools and functionalities are developed and integrated – the part of the site that’s all about your personal details is changing. To reflect this, it has been renamed from Your Preferences to Your Account

Now, when you go to Your Account, you will find the following new developments:

  • Your account information is split across several pages, rather than all on one page.
  • Under Academic Details you can see the course you are enrolled on. There are two new features on this page: You can now also see all the modules you are enrolled on – make sure these are correct. Secondly, if you are eligible, you can request a Council Tax Exemption Certificate online now – and print it out yourself, at your convenience.
  • There is navigation on the left hand side allowing you to move from one part of your account to another.

Have a look at Your Account to see the changes!

» Now on Glamlife: Students can check their Library Account

One of the recently added functionalities of students’ user profiles on Glamlife is the integration of “Your Library Account”.

Students can go to glamlife.glam.ac.uk/preferences to access this. The library information is displayed underneath their course information. The screenshot below illustrates its placement on the page:

This provides a convenient method for students to find out about loans, reservations, inter-library loans, library fees and more.

The Profile and Preferences area of Glamlife has been growing steadily of late, and students can find a lot of useful functionalities there. From maintaining personal details online, to fine tuning their subscriptions to Glamlife channels, interactivity and personalisation are key to the development of Glamlife. This continues the successful progress of the Make IT Personal Project.

There is also a brand new help feature, to assist students if they are unsure about a functionality. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please email glamlife@glam.ac.uk, and we will be happy to respond.
