Instructions on Creating a User Name and Password for Accessing "My Account" Features of BibliOak System
To start using the the new system to renew items, place holds or check account information, each library card holder must set up a new user account. You may do this online from home or we will be happy to assist you to do this here at the Library.
- Look for the "My Account" link on the front page of the catalog and click on it.
- Access the system using your library card number as your user name and the last 4 digits of your phone number as your password.
If you are having difficulty, it may be that you are trying with a phone number other than what we have on file for you. Try alternate numbers (work, cell, old home number). If all else fails, call us and we can reset your number.
You must then change your password, following the parameters listed.
- Once you have done that, you will need to log in again and may then change your user name. You may keep your library card number as your user name if you prefer, or substitute something easier for you to remember.
- Next, click on the tab named "Account Preferences" at the top of your account summary. Please select a "Default Hold Notification Method" and then save your preference changes. We encourage people to choose "Use Email Only" for the fastest and most efficient notification.
- Now you can renew items you have out, check the status of your account and reserve books online.
This log-in protocol will provide more convenience (no need to remember that long barcode number) as well as enhanced security (through the addition of a personal password only you know).
If you are unable to find the items you wish in the Bibliomation catalog you can also place holds from home in the Request statewide system. Search for your item in either Keyword or Advanced Search.“reQuest this item” and type your name, a password, and phone or email in the pop-up box. “Submit” your request and click on “close”. We will call or email you when your book arrives. Please pick up and return the book to the Putnam Public Library.
