About the Beta

The library has been working on a redesign of the Account section of the website. We have conducted user testing, and have just finished a closed beta trial with a small group of library users. Now we are ready to expand it to a larger group of people.

As we progress through the beta, we’ll be adding users gradually; this means that some of you may be placed on a waiting list as we increase the number of users.

New Features in Your Account

The new Account design is mobile friendly and includes these other enhancements:

  • Displays your personal information (name, address, library card number)
  • Allows you to update your home branch
  • Provides you with the date your library card expires
  • Allows you to “Stay Signed In” once you sign in

Future enhancements now possible

The new account includes a major update to the underlying technology, which makes it possible to add new features. New featured planned include:

  • Personal lists
  • Borrowing history
  • eBook holds and checkouts

It will also allow for the development of smartphone apps for account access.
