Only "super users" possess special permissions to impersonate other users in Northwestern Elements. Each department at Feinberg School of Medicine has one or more designated super users. These super users have a role in Elements called “System Verifier” which allows them to impersonate other users, edit publication records, and edit the verification status of publication records. You can find your super user by contacting your department administrators. See here: https://www.feinberg.northwestern.edu/fao/resources/administrative-contacts.html
New super users of Northwestern Elements should sign up for an in-person Northwestern Elements class, where they will receive the necessary permissions to be a super user. If super users prefer taking the pre-recorded class, they need to email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact their Liaison Librarian ahead of time to request the necessary permissions to be a super user for Northwestern Elements.
