Users can gain access to the electronic ledgers (E-ledgers) in one of two ways. They can be entered either as one of the three account administrators or granted proxy status by one of the account administrators. Ususally, two of the account administrators are the financial administrator handling the account in the LBC and the LBC manager. The third is generally reserved for the PI of the account or his/her designee.
The E-ledger system can currently draw on records dating back to June 2008. If records older than that are needed, department personnel can contact their financial adminstrator for a copy of the older paper files or a custom report.
The E-ledger system can be accessed with either Internet Explorer at ariadne.uchicago.edu or Firefox at ariadne.uchicago.edu/JavaClient. However certain features are not accessible in Firefox (e.g. batch printing, adding comments). When using Internet Explorer, be sure that ActiveX Controls are enabled in order to access all of the features. For either browser, the JAVA plugin must be installed.
