The Security Groups pane on the left side of the screen lists each of the default and custom security groups that are set up for your site. These can be assigned to your operators and patrons in Patrons Management. Operators with the appropriate authority can add, duplicate, edit, or remove any of the custom security groups for your site.
Each group is assigned different default settings. Default security groups, listed below, can be edited but cannot removed or renamed.

Operators at this level can edit district-level preferences and have access to all library preferences. All other access levels can only modify records from their assigned library collections. The District Administrator security group cannot be removed or modified.

This is the default security group for all newly created patrons. The only settings that can be modified in this security group are permissions for their own patron account, such as the ability to place holds and reservations when using Researcher.
