How to Enable a History of Your Checked Out Items

For privacy reasons, the library does not have access to a record of items you have checked out. However, through the digital catalog, you can enable a history for your own use. 

Once logged into the catalog

click on the Preferences option from My Account. Then select Search & History.

On this screen, you can set up your preference for where you search and what aspects of your library-use history you want to keep.

If you would like to keep a history of the items that you have checked out, check the checkbox on the line next to Keep history of checked out items. The history-keeping will only start after you have checked the box and saved your preferences. The system does not retroactively remember what you checked out.

If you would like to remember all the items you have placed holds on, check the checkbox next to the line Keep history of holds. The history-keeping will only start after you have checked the box and saved your preferences. The system does not retroactively remember the holds you placed.

After you have made all your preference selections, click the Save button at the bottom of the screen to save them. If you forget to click the Save button, your preferences will not be remembered.

Other useful options on this page include:

Search hits per page affects how many search results you see on each web page. You can choose up to 50 from the dropdown.

Preferred search location is the library that you would like to search by default when you are logged in. To search other libraries or to search the whole consortium, you will have to select this from the dropdown when you perform your search.

Preferred pickup location is the library that you would generally like your holds sent to. You can choose a different pickup location for specific holds if desired when placing the holds.

The last check box is Skip warning when adding to temporary book list. Temporary book lists are no longer a part of the catalog. They have been replaced by Baskets. You can leave this option unchecked. More information about Baskets can be found on our Help page for Searching and Browsing the Catalog.
