New Bibliocommons Catalogue
The new Bibliocommons catalogue lauched at Bowen Library this summer—somewhat unexpectedly sooner than we had anticipated! If you logged in to your account recently, you may have noticed the change.
Biibliocommons is the same catalogue interface you will have encountered at many other libraries, including West Vancouver Memorial and Vancouver Public Libraries. You'll be able to track your borrowing, rate and review items you borrowed, see booklists, and get personalized recommendations.
Logging In for the First Time
When you login for the first time since the switchover, please use your barcode on your library card and current password. You'll be prompted to create a new username and select some settings.
The process is quite simple, but if you are having trouble, we have a video demonstrating logging in for the first time. Bibliocommons also has a Logging In help page.
While you do not need to login to see the catalogue, logging in allows you to renew and place holds on titles as well as comment, rate titles, create booklists and use other social functions in the new Bibliocommons catalogue.
Feel free to call us, email us, or come in to the library if you need further assistance.
