Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of creating a BiblioBoard account?

BiblioBoard open access is the default and does not require an account to browse limited content. Creating an account allows you full access to the collection in addition to personalized features such as:

  • favourites
  • bookmarks and notes
  • recently browsed titles (up to 20)
  • offline Bookshelf (in the app only)

These features can be found under My Board in the Menu once you are signed in.
