2.   Create a Group that contains just Comics Plus and add this as a Featured Group on the MackinVIA Home Page. 

Then set the default Start Page to Home.  You can move the featured group so it is at the top of the page, then when patrons log into MackinVIA that will be the first thing they see. This is a great option if you do not want your home page to be Databases.
