Our most popular option. This is the typical account for new faculty and staff members.

Basic Account

Similar to our Premium Account, but does not include a Humnet e-mail address. The client may use an existing e-mail address.

Resource Account

Not for personal accounts, but primarily used if only an e-mail address is needed. For example, "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.".

Limited Account

For individuals outside the UCLA Humanities department who would like to transfer files to/from existing Humnet account owners.
