What is a Backpack™?
Backpack™ accounts help you store and manage your digital resources. With a Backpack, you can save your favorite resources in one place, check out, request, and store notes about Mackin-hosted resources.
PLEASE NOTE: You will need to create a Backpack account to begin using the MackinVIA™ app.
