Setting up your Gmail account

email clipHow do I get a Gmail account?

Many of you are at least somewhat familiar with Google accounts and blogging from your experience during the Sirsi training. Whether you already have a Google account or not, setting up Gmail is easy.

  1. Go to Gmail’s Welcome Page
  2. Click on “Sign Up for Gmail”
  3. Complete the information in the box: “Get started with Gmail” and you are set up.

Gmail’s help facility is very good and includes a nice tutorial that should get you started.

Also, the click! program at KRL is now teaching a class on Gmail and created this handout that walks you through setting up an account step-by-step.

Gmail works a lot like other email programs, but it has some great features I think you’ll like that are a bit different.
