How Can I Track What I've Already Read at the Library?

Reading History allows patrons to track items they have checked out from Roseville Public Library. By default, the catalog never records your reading history.

If you choose to start recording 'My Reading History,' you agree to allow our automated system to store this data. Library staff does not have access to your 'My Reading History', however, it is subject to all applicable local, state, and federal laws, and under those laws, could be examined by law enforcement authorities without your permission. If this is of concern to you, you should not use the 'My Reading History' feature.

How do I start tracking my reading history?

Go to 'Reading History.'

link to Reading History

Select 'Start Recording My Reading History.'

Start recording my reading history link

Titles will begin recording from current checkouts moving forward; they will not load previously checked out materials.

How do I stop tracking my reading history?

Go to 'Reading History.'

link to Reading History

Select 'Stop Recording My Reading History.'

Stop recording my reading history link

Select 'OK' on the op-out notice.

Opt out of reading history popup

*If you decide to stop recording your reading history, the catalog will delete your entire reading history permanently. If you decide to resume tracking your reading history, titles will begin recording from current checkouts moving forward; they will not load previously checked out materials.


Do library staff have access to my reading history?

Library staff does not have access to your reading history and also cannot change reading history preferences for library patrons. However, if 'My Reading History' is set to record your library checkout, it is subject to all applicable local, state, and federal laws, and under those laws, could be examined by law enforcement authorities without your permission. If this is of concern to you, you should not use the 'My Reading History' feature.

How Do I Place, Cancel or Suspend Holds?

How to Place Holds

After searching for the item you would like to place on hold, select 'Place Hold' next to the format you prefer.

Place hold link

For physical items (not eContent), a box will pop up on the screen asking to confirm your Pickup Location. Pickup Location will automatically default to your Home Library; select the dropdown menu to choose another location. Make sure to select 'Submit Hold Request' to confirm your hold.

Suubmit hold request link

Digital materials like eBooks and eAudiobooks can also be placed on hold through the catalog. Select 'Place Hold' next to the corresponding eContent. For resources like Hoopla, you may need to create an account first before you are able to place holds.

Place hold econtent link

How to View (and Cancel or Suspend) Holds

All holds, including digital and physical items, can be seen and managed in your account. Select 'Titles on Hold' to see your current holds list. You are also able to cancel, suspend, and change the pickup location for hold items from this page.

Titles on hold link


What does 'Suspend Hold' Do?

If you select 'Suspend Hold' next to an item, it will pause your hold until you choose to resume it. This allows an item to stay on your hold list even though you may not want/need to pick it up immediately. Please keep in mind that suspended holds still count towards your total holds limit, and if other people place holds on an item before you have resumed your hold, they will have a higher priority than you on the holds list.

*If a suspended hold is not resumed within 365 days, it will automatically be removed from your account.

Accessing eResources

Visit our Digital Media page to view our most popular online resources, including Libby, Kanopy and hoopla. You can review and download our eResources Setup Guide for more in-depth instructions.

Access other online library resources through our Reseach & Learn page. Most online resources will ask you to verify your library card number.

What Are Linked Accounts and How Do They Work?

Linked accounts allow patrons to easily maintain multiple library accounts so you can see all of your information in one place. Information from linked accounts will appear when you view your checkouts, holds, etc. This option is great for families managing multiple children's cards, caregivers or other situations where you may need to manage multiple library cards.

Linked accounts are a one-way view of someone else's library account information. For example, if Jane links to John's account, then Jane can view information about John's account. John cannot view information about Jane's account unless John also links back to Jane's account.

*Please note that linked accounts are not the same as accounts that are attached due to a guarantee/guarantor relationship in the library's system. Library staff are not able to link patron accounts and cannot access linked account information for patrons.

How to Link Accounts

Log in to your library account.

Select 'Linked Accounts' from the dropdown menu.

Linked Accounts

Select 'Add an Account' and enter the library card number and password of the account you want to link. You may link to multiple library accounts.

Add a Linked Account

Once linked, you will see user information under 'Additional accounts to manage.'

Additional accounts to manage

How to See If Your Account is Linked to Another Account

Once you've linked to another account, the linkee will see a notification at the top of the catalog letting them know that their account has been linked to. They can choose to agree to the link or access 'Manage Linked Accounts' to remove the link.

Linked account notification

If your account is linked to another patron, their account will be visible under 'Other accounts that can view this account.'

Other accounts that can view this account

How to Remove Linked Accounts

If your account is linked to another patron, their account will be visible under 'Other accounts that can view this account.' Select the 'Remove' button next to the account you want to remove access to.

Remove linked accounts

Please note that removing a linked account does not guarantee security of your account. If another user has your barcode and PIN/password they will still be able to access your account, so you may want to change your password after removing a linked account.

How to Completely Disable Linked Accounts

If you do not want your account linked in any way to another library account, there is an option to completely disable Linked Accounts.

After logging into your account, simply select 'Disable Account Linking' from the Linked Accounts page.

Disable Account Linking button

You are able to re-enable account linking at any time.


How to See Linked Library Card Barcodes

You can view yours and any linked accounts barcode, library card number, and expiration dates by selecting  'Your Library Card.'
