If you get this error and you are logged into Blackboard, it means that the security/privacy settings on your web browser are set up to not allow 3rd party cookies.  You'll need to change this setting to allow 3rd party cookies by following these steps (NOTE: This does make your computer marginally more vulnerable to intrusions, though the risk is low. If you have questions, contact a Reference Librarian).

For Internet Explorer:
Click on Tools > Internet Options > Privacy
Change the setting to "Low"
For Firefox:
Click on Tools > Options > Privacy
Select "Accept cookies from sites"
Select "Accept third-party cookies"
Change "Keep until" to "they expire"

Safari:
Click on Safari > Preferences > Privacy
Change "Block cookies and other website data" to “Never”
