Why is the UAB Electronic Phonebook set up so each person has to manage their own account? What about group administration?

The UAB Electronic Phonebook is indeed "user centric." Advantages of this approach include: 

 

  • Users are free to change their own passwords, preferred e-mail server, and some other information.
     
  • UAB Electronic Phonebook listings come directly from official Human Resources (ORACLE) and Student (BANNER) databases, and are updated daily. As "official" records, they serve as the basis for present and future services which will make use of the same user name (also referred to as BlazerID) and password. As e-mail administrator, you should encourage users to know about this service, select their own BlazerID, and keep up with their own password.
