This article is the User's Manual for the RSNA MIRC implementation.
+
The User's manual has been broken up into three parts, as follows:
  
==Viewing Teaching Files==
+
* [[Viewing Teaching Files]] talks about viewing and searching for teaching files.
 
+
* [[Your Account]] talks about your login and what you can do with it.
===Accessing a MIRC Site===
+
* [[The Author Service]] is intended for the authors of teaching files.
 
+
===The Query Service===
+
 
+
==Authoring Teaching Files==
+
 
+
===The Storage Service===
+
 
+
===The File Service===
+
 
+
===The Author Service===
+
 
+
====Templates====
+
====Normal Sections====
+
====Image Sections====
+
===The Submit Service===
+
====Powerpoint Tool====
+
===The Zip Service===
+
The Zip Service allows users to submit collections of files to a MIRC site, automatically producing one or more MIRCdocuments on the site. The Zip Service is a server-side implementation of a concept first proposed by Adam Flanders at the RSNA 2005 conference. The original motivation for the Zip Service was to provide an easy way to pre-load a new MIRC site with an existing collection of images organized into individual cases. While the Zip Service is useful in this context, it is also a very convenient way to produce a single MIRCdocument.

See [[The_Zip_Service_User%27s_Manual|the Zip Service User's Manual]] for details.

+
===User Accounts===
+
To gain access to more than the basic MIRC features, a user must have an account on the MIRC site. An account consists of a username and a password plus a list of permissions, which are called <b>roles</b>. Certain features require that the user possess a specific role related to the feature. For example:
+
*To be authenticated on a MIRC Storage Service, the user must possess the Storage Service's <b>user</b> role.
+
*To be allowed to submit a document to a MIRC Storage Service's Submit Service or Zip Service, the user must possess the Storage Service's <b>author</b> role.
+
*To be allowed to create a document on a MIRC Storage Service's Author Service, the user must possess the Storage Service's <b>author</b> role.
+
*To be allowed to make a document public on a MIRC Storage Service, the user must possess the Storage Service's <b>publisher</b> role.
+
*To be allowed to access a MIRC site's File Service, the user must possess the File Service's <b>user</b> role. (This is a separate role from the one for a Storage Service.)
+
Roles are granted to users by the MIRC site administrator.
+
 
+
 
+
====The Login Button====
+
The <b>Login</b> button on the query page authenticates a user, making the system aware of the user's roles.
+
 
+
====The My Account Button====
+
Once a user is authenticated, the <b>My Account</b> button on the query page provides access to the user's account, allowing the user to change the account's password.
+
 
+
Additionally, if enabled by the administrator, this function also allows the user to create or join a <b>group</b>. A <b>group</b> is a <b>role</b> that can be created and given a password by a user. Other users wishing to join the group must do so by entering the group name and password on their <b>My Account</b> pages. MIRCdocuments that contain <b>read</b> permissions that include the group name are visible to all members of the group. This provides a way for a group of users to conveniently share a collection of documents without making the documents public.
