Hi Chris, The new policy was approved by the Library Board in April and implemented at the beginning of July. The information appeared in a news release, and website help content/policy info was updated, but you're right that there hasn't been any real promotion of the changes until now.

No, the maximum number of checkouts you can have at one time is still 50.

Hi Anna, The testing we're doing this week is a usability test where we observe users interacting with the website, so it's not something we can do over the phone. There will be other opportunities to participate in testing and provide feedback on the new version of the account, including a beta testing phase that you can join from anywhere. To stay informed and receive invitations to future testing, join our Website Advisory Group. Thanks for your interest in helping us and giving input!

Hi Andy, The library doesn't catalogue all of its books - we find that mass-market paperbacks have a fairly short lifespan, and we can get high-demand titles into customers' hands faster if we don't catalogue them. You may see a record in the catalogue for the same title, but it is probably for the hardcover edition of the book, not the paperback. Hope this makes sense. Thanks for your comments. Sandra
