Note: Accounts on Blackboard are generated from three sources: 

- Students accounts are generated from the main Student Records system (Quercus).

- Staff accounts are automatically created from the Human Resources database (Core HR)

- Temporary accounts can be organised where necessary (eg. temporary staff, external examiners, visiting lecturers). These accounts can be organised by contacting servicedesk@nuigalway.ie
