Help with Reading (Checkout) History

The Reading History feature allows you to track your checkout history. Once activated, this feature stores records of the items you have checked out, even after the items have been returned.

Please note: items requested through Interlibrary Loan do not display in Reading History.

This feature is strictly voluntary. If you don't choose to maintain a reading history, then no record of your borrowed items will be kept after they are returned. If you do choose to maintain a reading history, you are consenting to the storage of reading history data. Such data is subject to the library's Privacy Policy.
