Question and Answer

What is Borrowing History?


If you choose to enable it, Borrowing History will keep a list of all the physical items you borrow, or check out, from the library. It is only visible to you. Borrowing History does not track anything until you opt in. 

Learn how to opt-in in this help article.

If you choose to opt out after activating Borrowing History, your history will be erased, and you will not be able to retrieve it.

Only items that were checked out and in after you turned on Borrowing History will display.

However, if you already opted in to the Reading History feature in the previous catalog, it will automatically import your history to the new catalog when you enable Borrowing History. Some titles in your Reading History may no longer be owned by WCCLS libraries, and will not display in the new catalog. 

Sorting: Since our new catalog isn't actually storing your check out history (for your privacy), it fetches the data on demand from our database. Because of this, it can be problematic to sort your reading history, especially if you have a lot of items in your history.

100 items or less: The sort options are available.

More than 100 items: Due to the extensive delay in response time, the sorting options are not available.

Hint: To better track borrowed items, consider using the Completed Shelf.  Adding titles from your Borrowing History to Completed Shelf provides you with more flexibility. In addition to sorting, you can exclude titles you don't want and filter the shelf, making it easier to find a specific title. Read more about shelves in this help article. You can also tag these items, with personal or public tags, and then use those tags to facet and organize your items.
