The Zoomify Image Viewer supports input of a user-selected username. When this feature is used in conjunction with annotation editing it is automatically associated with user edits. The value can also be accessed by JavaScript functions for use in a web page or website system. Accepted values are active for the duration of the browser session.

Note that this feature does not imply asset security features such as record locking or encryption. Standard security protections are still recommended and are completely compatible with publication and viewing of Zoomify Images. For additional protection of valuable image assets, see the '21-Copyright' and '22-Watermarks' examples.
