Setting Account Preferences

If you click on the Account Preferences tab, you will be shown tabs for three more screens underneath this. The default screen is the Personal Information screen shown below. The other tabs will allow you to:

Personal Information

The information on these screens is all drawn from your record in the system. You can only change three things in this tab:

  • Username
  • Password
  • Email address.

To change your user name: 

  • Click on the word "Change" in the User Name line.
  • You will be asked for your current password and the new user name you want to use.
  • Click the Submit button to finish. You will be taken back to the Personal Information tab. The user name change takes effect immediately

To change your password:

  • Click on the word "Change" in the Password line.
  • You will be asked to enter your current password and to enter your new password twice.
  • Click the Submit button to finish. You will be taken back to the Personal Information tab. The password change takes effect immediately.

To change your email address:

  • Click on the word "Change" in the Email Address line.
  • You will be shown your current email address. Enter your current password and your new email address.
  • Click the Submit button to finish. You will be taken back to the Personal Information tab. The email address change takes effect immediately.

Note: If you change your email address, hold notifications that you placed before you changed it will go to the old email address. The email address is not dynamically updated for holds.

Notification Preferences

Here you can set how you would like to receive hold notifications. Would you like email to be your default contact method when a hold comes in? Then make sure that box is checked.

Would you rather your phone number be the prefered notification method? Then check that and input your phone number you'd like to receive notifications from your library at. You can also receive text notifications.

Make sure that your phone carrier is correctly selected from the dropdown list. Choose as many default notification formats as you like.

Search and History Preferences

In this screen you can set up your preferred search/hold library if you'd like your search results and hold requests to automatically be scoped to a specific library in the system you visit.

Note: "Keep History of Checked Out Items" and "Keep History of Holds" are useful features to enable if you want to make sure you haven't read the same book in a series before. If these are enabled, when searching the catalog, you will see an alert in the search screen of items you've already checked out.

My Lists Preferences

Here you can set the number of items you'd like set up for your book lists. A great way to keep track of items you'd like to read in the future!
