Why the Double Login?
The LCME Committee is using Microsoft SharePoint to manage the sharing
of documents comprising the LCME database. The UVa SharePoint
installation runs on the main UVA network, not the Health System
network. As such, you will encounter the need to login once to
SharePoint and once again when you open a document. The mechanisms to
eliminate the second login may compromise security so are not
recommended.SharePoint is being used to store and share database files
for the LCME review. Below are the instructions on how to download,
update, and upload documents:
Obtain an Eservices Password
You will need an "eservices" password to login to SharePoint. This
is a password that is given out by UVA's central Information Technology
Services. Most Health System faculty and staff already have an
eservices password, but may not be aware of it. If you have never used
your eservices password, you'll need to do an "in person validation" in
order to have your password activated or reset. Options for this
- Claude Moore Health Sciences Library: You can get
your eservices password at the library where the circulation desk
offers ID verifications on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 AM to 12:00
AM. Library representatives will check your credentials for an
eservices password. Bring your UVA Health System ID card.
MAKE SURE TO LOGIN TO A LIBRARY WORKSTATION TO VERIFY YOUR
PASSWORD BEFORE LEAVING!

locations for ID validation.
WINDOWS: It is highly recommended that you use
Internet Explorer 8 or higher with SharePoint. Internet Explorer will
give you the full range of functionality with SharePoint and
MS Office document management tools.
MAC: Safari or Firefox, latest versions. Chrome
on a Mac is NOT recommended.

Although it's tempting to use "Remember my credentials," we advise
against it for security reasons. Click "OK" to login.
Find Your Document
On the left-hand side, you will see links to document libraries
organized by LCME subcommittee. Navigate first to the LCME subcommittee
you are serving on, and continue linking through to your working group
sub-folder and then to the document you need to review or edit.
Please note: You may have information in an additional folder in
your subcommittee library! If you have a question where your
document is at or where to file it back once you are done, please see
the “Where is my subcommittee document located?” document that appears
at the bottom of each list of subcommittee folders.
Once you find your document library, you'll need to know if you
are going to either simply read the document OR if you are going to
edit the document. For information on how to do either of these, select
the appropriate tab at the top of the page.
