NAU researchers/users can access Pivot one of two ways:
1. IP Access
From any on-campus computer, go to the PIVOT url: http://pivot.cos.com. NAU IP addresses are recognized by Pivot, so you may start searching for funding or faculty profiles right away.
2. Username and Password
Creating a Pivot account is easy – go to http://pivot.cos.com and click the “Sign up” option in the upper right of the screen. Enter the requested information for your name and e-mail address, and then affiliate with Northern Arizona University.
All users can log in at http://pivot.cos.com with a Pivot username and password anytime, anywhere. Logging in this way will take you to your Pivot homepage. From your homepage, you can manage active or tracked funding opportunities, saved searches, shared opportunities, etc., and start searching for funding or scholars.
Username and password access is necessary when a) a user is off-campus, or b) when a user needs to save a funding record or funding search.
