Library Tips & Tricks

Reading History

Once you return an item to the library, it's removed from your record. Library staff do not have the ability to see what items you've borrowed in the past.


However, you can keep a list of borrowed items using the library catalog if you turn on the Reading History feature in the library catalog.


Visit the state-wide library catalog: http://catalog.oslri.net. Sign in to your account with your library card number and PIN. From there you can see what you currently have checked out and on hold. You can also turn your Reading History on. Click on the Reading History link and select the Opt In button. The catalog will start keeping a record of items you have borrowed and when you borrowed them.
