Retiring the Classic Catalog

The Classic Catalog will be retired as of October 2, 2018 and will no longer be available.

Why are you making this change?

It has been increasingly difficult to maintain two separate online catalogs, and in order to best utilize our staff time and resources, it’s important for us to focus our efforts on one online catalog (BiblioCommons).

Additionally, our new website, launching on October 2, will have a number of features, such as suggesting purchases and accessing some databases, that are available only to customers with online catalog accounts. We want you to be able to access all of our services!

How do I make an account in the online catalog?

Creating your online catalog account is a simple process that takes just a few minutes.

Start here by entering your 14-digit library barcode and pin. You will be prompted to go through a few steps.

  • Customers older than 13 will be required to create a unique username. You can always change this username later, or opt to continue logging in with your barcode and pin.

  • Pickup locationsAfter you set up your account, we recommend that you go into My Settings and specify your preferred pickup location where you would like to pick up your holds. If you always pick up from the same place, you can turn on single-click holds to easily request books with just one click.

  • If you want to track your Borrowing History, you can opt into that feature as well.

How can I get assistance with making an account?

For personal assistance, we invite you to make a Training on Demand appointment or simply come into your local branch and we can help you create your account.

I have been tracking titles in My List in the Classic Catalog. How can I move them over to the online catalog?

Once you create your account, you can go to your For Later shelf in the online catalog and use the button at the top to import your list.

What if I don’t want to use the online catalog?

You can always continue to come into a library branch, call, or email us to put holds on materials, manage your account, or access databases. However, if you wish to do these things from home you will need an online catalog account.
