Keeping Account Information Current

This is a good time of the year to review your online account information and make sure it is up to date.  If you are the owner of the library, your account information is used to send renewal notices.  If you need to update your account information you can do so by clicking on the account link in the upper left hand corner of the web page, then click on the profile link.  It is important to make sure all information is accurate and up to date.  If any changes were made, be sure to click the save button.  

Now is also a good time to review your password.  Passwords should contain both numbers and letters.  Please, no special punctuation.  If you wish to change your password you can do so by clicking the account link and then click on the password link.  

Please take the time to review your general settings as well. These can be located under the settings link.  To edit your general settings click on the settings link located on the left hand side of the screen.  Next you’ll want to click on the general link.  Here you’ll be able to edit general information associated with your library such as address, phone numbers, and days and hours that your library is open.  The library general settings are used for library specific reports, letters and notices.  For instance, the patron overdue letters will have the return address of the library general settings and not the address in the main user’s account.
