Account Preferences - Search & History
Click on the Account Preferences tab. The right hand tab under the Account Preferences tab is Search and History Preferences. Click on the Search and History Preferences tab. Under this tab, you will set up your preference for where you search and what aspects of your library use history you want to keep.
Search hits per page means how many search results would you want to see on each web page. You can choose up to 50 from the dropdown.
Preferred search location is the library that you would like to search by default when you are logged in. To search other libraries or to search the whole consortium, you will have to select this from the dropdown when you do your search.
Preferred pickup location is the library that you would like your holds sent to.
If you would like to keep a history of the items that you have checked out, check the checkbox on the line next to Keep history of checked out items. The history-keeping will only start after you have checked the box and saved your preferences. The system does not retroactively remember what you checked out.
If you would like to remember all the items you have placed holds on, check the checkbox next to the line Keep history of holds. The history-keeping will only start after you have checked the box and saved your preferences. The system does not retroactively remember the holds you placed.
The last check box is Skip warning when adding to temporary book list. The documentation on My Lists explains more about this and what a temporary list is. Unless you have a great deal of confidence in yourself that you will never accidentally forget to convert a temporary list into a saved list, the recommendation is to leave this option unchecked.
After you have made all your preference selections, click the Save button at the bottom of the screen to save them. If you forget to click the Save button, your preferences will not be remembered.
