Databases: How to Use RIA (Logging In and Searching)
(Limited to Stetson Students, Faculty, & Staff)
LOGINS: Any Stetson student or faculty or staff member may login into RIA
from the library's database page
Stetson students/faculty/staff may register using their own PC as long as it is connected to the Stetson campus network. RIA will then be able to recognize that you are logging in from Stetson and can assign the correct Checkpoint ID, thereby ensuring the ability to customize Checkpoint.
For Stetson students, faculty, or staff wishing to create your own RIA Account:
Log on to CheckPoint (http://proxy.stetson.edu:2048/login?url=http://www.checkpoint-registration.riag.com/schools)
Get Your Checkpoint ID:
Once on the registration site, you will be required to read the licensing agreement. Click ACCEPT at the bottom of the license box. Type in your first name, last name and e-mail address, and select the semester period for which you are enrolled (choices are Jan.01-Jul31 or Graduate Student or Aug.01-Dec31).
Then click on REGISTER. Within minutes, you will receive an e-mail containing Checkpoint access information (User Name and Password).
It will also contain some basic instructions as well as Technical Support information. This User Name and Password ensures that your customized version of Checkpoint is truly unique-for example, for saved searches and history (which identifies locations of previously found solutions or answers, etc.). Remember, this is valid only for a semester.
For continued use students/faculty will then use http://www.riacheckpoint.com.
After initially using the database with a Stetson computer/IP address a Stetson user may look at the RIA Checkpoint database from any computer.
