Internet Explorer 8 Security Settings

Users of Internet Explorer 8, the newest version of Microsoft Internet Explorer, will have problems accessing their SC Lends accounts due to an added security measure in that program.  We recommend the use of alternative browsers, especially Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari, to access their SC Lends accounts without problems. There is no security risk posed to users of the SC Lends Catalog, despite the Internet Explorer 8 alert message.

SC Lends Users who prefer using Internet Explorer can click "No" to the security prompts at each "My Account" page.

Those who do not want this security warning to appear will need to take the following steps to be able to use the My Account areas of the SC Lends Catalog:

1. In IE8, click, from the menu bar, Tools -> Internet Options, which will open this window.  Click on the Security tab:

2. Click on Custom level… and a new window will open:

3. Under the “Miscellaneous” section of options, find Display Mixed Content and click Enable, then OK to close the window (a warning box asking if you are sure will appear – click Yes).

After taking these steps, you should no longer receive the prompts.

Please contact your local library if you continue to have problems accessing your SC Lends account.
