  2. click on "Forgot your Password" in the lower left hand corner.  That will take you to this page:
  3. Once you fill in your username and click "Submit", the Johns Hopkins Press will send you a temporary password.  You'll still be at the URL above, but the page itself has changed a little and now has a link at the bottom called "Return to login".
  4. If you click on "Return to login", you end up on this page
  5. where you can enter your username and the temporary password that the Press has sent by e-mail.  Once you do that, you end up here
  6. You now need to change your temporary password to a permanent one of your own choosing.  The page you are on contains the form you use to pay dues online, but, instead of doing that, click on "Profile" in the top menu.  Doing so will take you to this page
  7. where you can click on "Change Password", which will take you to this page
  8. where you can change the temporary password to something you want. Once you do that, you come back to this page

  10. and enter your username and the password you just created.
