24.4. Account Preferences

Select the Account Preferences tab at the top of the My Account area to access your preferences.

Personal Information

You can change the username and password that you use to log in to your library account as well as the email address the library uses to contact you in the Personal Information tab by clicking the Change link next to the item.

Depending on your library's policy, you may request a change to your address by submitting a new address in your account. Library staff will verify it and update your account.

If you need to make a change to other information, such as your phone number, please see the library staff.

Notification Preferences

The Notification Preferences tab is where you set your preferences for holds notification. You can choose to be contacted by email, phone or text message.

This is also where you can opt-out of receiving courtesy and overdue email notices using the Receive Overdue and Courtesy Emails setting.

Caution

Un-checking this box means your library will not send you any emails for items coming due or overdue. You are still responsible for returning items on time and paying any applicable fines.

Search and History Preferences

The Search and History Preferences tab allows you to configure how many search results are displayed per page on your catalogue searches, your preferred pick up location if a member of a multi branch library, whether you want to keep a history of your check outs and holds, and who you allow to use your library account on your behalf. The check out and holds history is not retroactive, it takes effect once you choose to retain your history. You may also choose to disable a warning about adding items to a temporary list.
