Click on the Login button on the side bar to open a page for registered users to log in, or for new users to register.

To register, enter a name and an email address and click the Register button.
A confirmation window will open to explain that a new password has been sent to the email that was used for registration. 

Check the email that was used to register. The password and instructions from the Montana Memory Project should be there. An example is below.
If the email isn't there, make sure to check spam and junk folders just in case.

Follow the instructions in the email and log in with the password. 

After completing the registration process other MMP tools will become available.
