Discover how self-registration works in Folio and how it can be configured in OLIB Web.

User self-registration in Folio

Users who do not yet have a log in can use the Register yourself feature from the Login box:

Folio Login box.

This loads the following example screen for user input:

User self-registration screen.

When the user saves the details Folio responds:

Your details have been noted. You will be contacted when the registration process is complete.

OLIB automatically creates these users with a User category of Unidentified User.

Authorise in OLIB Web

Library staff can pick up self-registered users in OLIB Web by filtering the Users search in OLIB Web by Self-Registered=Y.

  1. in Users click Refine Search.
  2. In the Refine Search window choose Self-Registered?
  3. Check the box for Yes and click Search.

Staff will need to allocate a Barcode to the new User record.

The registration form will only permit one address to be entered. Further addresses can be added later – this can be immediately after registering.

Configure self-registration

To enable / disable self-registration, edit these settings in the Config Block login:


  1. Go to OPAC> Configuration Settings.
  2. Search for the setting self_registration:
  • Set the Value field to False if you do NOT want Register yourself to appear in the Folio Login box.
  • Set the Value field to True if you do want Register yourself to appear in the Folio Login box; set Include?=Y


  1. Go to OPAC> Configuration Settings.
  2. Search for the setting register_yourself.
  3. Edit the text in the Value field e.g. "Click here to register" including double quotes.

Changes take effect when you next refresh Folio.

Edit the fields displayed for self-registration

The fields on the self-registration screen are controlled by the usdetails settings in g_user_details.

Controlling the display of self-registration fields is the same as for the User Account details page. This allows you to include/exclude user fields, re-sequence and re-name.
