You may have been given the title of an ORLO list, but cannot find it from the ORLO homepage search bar. Or you may have been sent the direct URL to the list, but an error message appears when you click on it. This might be because the list is still in draft mode (rather than published) and only those with ORLO list publisher permissions can access draft lists. You may have already created an ORLO profile, which is linked to your SSO, but list publisher permissions must be requested in addition to creating an ORLO profile.
To request ORLO list publisher permissions, please contact your subject consultant or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unsure who to contact. Alternatively, please attend one of our ORLO list creation training sessions, where you will receive list publisher permissions on completion.
If you do have list publisher permissions and still cannot access the list, then please ensure you have logged into ORLO with your SSO at the top of the webpage before trying search for the list title/access the URL again.
Please download the PDF guide below for details on how to accept ORLO list publisher permissions.
Please check that you have found the latest version of the list you have inherited. Lists are copied and rolled over each summer to create lists for the next academic year (see the Rollover page for further details) and so multiple versions of the same list can exist at once.
Check which time period has been set at the top of the list (e.g. Academic Year 2021/22). Additionally, a yellow banner will appear at the top of an old list stating 'This list has a newer version' with a link to the newer version provided (please see the screenshot below). Please ensure you are editing and publishing the latest version of list as changes cannot be copied and pasted between separate lists. Contact your subject consultant or College Library if you are uncertain if you have the latest version of your list.
