Your Borrowing History (which was called Reading History on the old site) is private and visible only to you. It is only visible to library staff if you give them permission to log in as you and view it. BiblioCommons, the company that maintains our website, doesn't store Borrowing History data. They simply display it from our underlying system, which will continue to be maintained by Innovative Interfaces, Inc. (III), which is bound by the same kind of agreement. They keep all of your account information confidential.
The Library works with a variety of vendors to provide service to the public. The vendors are bound by agreements with Pima County which keep your borrowing information confidential. Vendors who work with Pima County treat your information as the Library would. They do not disclose it or share it, and they will only release it to law enforcement under warrant. In the case of the vendor who created the website, BiblioCommons, they do not have access to your reading history.
Should you decide not to register on the website, you will not be able to access your account information online except through the Classic Catalog, opens a new window, which is an older system and is not guaranteed to be available forever. Once the vendor of the Classic Catalog removes support for it, it will no longer be maintained. In that event, you would have the option to call Infoline at 791-4010 to renew materials, confirm due dates, and place holds.
