Creating an account

When we do a keyword or Advanced search, there are no "View (Free)" or "Download (Free)" links in the search results. We have to click on an item's title link to see more information.

When we do this, we also see the option to create a personal account within the RRC subscription.

The personal account allows us to log in to the Conference Board e-Library from the Conference Board's public web site ( We click on "Sign in" in the upper right corner of the home page).

A personal account allows us to be notified by email of new Conference Board publications. These are selected to match a profile of interests that we identify when creating our account.

To create an account we click on "Create an account".

This is also the box that appears when we "Sign in" to the Conference Board public web site with an existing personal account.

We click on the "Create a New Account" button to create our account.

We fill in the blanks and click on the "Next" button.

This form allows us to identify our areas of interest. We will be notified by email of any new publications in the topic areas we select.

When we log on using our account the initial listing of "Recently Released" publications will also reflect our areas of interest.

When the profile is complete we click on the "Next" button.

We fill in the blanks and click on the "Finish" button to complete the process.
