LabArchives: Activate Account

The first time you log-in to the UW-Madison LabArchives service, you will need to complete an activation step.

Once your lab or research group's LabArchives account has been provisioned as described in LabArchives: Request account, you (and each member of the group), will need to activate your account. 

Important: If you are using a shared computer, such as a lab computer, computer kiosk, or even someone else’s laptop, be sure to log-out of any prior browser session (NetID Login Service - Logout Procedure) before you begin the steps below.

The first time you log-in to the UW-Madison LabArchives service (LabArchives: Logging in), you will be guided to the screen below which asks whether you want to create a new account or have an existing account.
