Bug Description

Evergreen 3.1

The Evergreen self check and opac currently both use the same login mechanism. This can cause issues if a computer is used for both self check and the OPAC.

If you log into the self check on a computer and then open the OPAC in the same browser the OPAC is already logged in with the account used for the self check. This causes problems if the computer running the self check is not locked down in some way to prevent users from opening an additional tab. Users can inadvertently place holds for the self check account when they are intending to place holds for themselves.

Ideally logging into the self check should not automatically log into the OPAC.
