Tip of the Week: Reminder: Link your Document Retrieval Service (DRS) and My ARC Accounts

On March 3, 2016, ARC introduced a new feature that allows you to link your Document Retrieval Service (DRS) account with your My ARC account for a true single sign-on experience. With this feature, active DRS accounts may be linked or unlinked from any active My ARC account. A "Link/Unlink" header displayed at the top of the DRS page allows you to link or unlink your accounts.

Once linked, you can select Document Retrieval System from your My ARC tool list and immediately launch DRS.
