How to export data from your old Library Catalogue account

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 lockdown.

In the old library system, the Library Catalogue gave you the option of saving information with your library account, specifically:

  • Saved searches
  • Reading history
  • Lists (of books and other library materials)

Unfortunately, any of this information that you have saved in the old library system will not be migrated to Omni.

You must export any data that you would like to save before April 30, 2020.

Click here to login to your library account (old system). Once you've logged into your account you will be able to save your data using the methods indicated below.

To export your saved searches

Saved searches cannot be exported from the old library system, so you will have to manually copy the information from your library account to a Word document or text file.

You can then use this information to manually recreate each of your searches in Omni.

To export your reading history

In your library account, go to your Reading History and click Export my Reading List.

Note: Reading history is only available if you opted in to this feature. By default, the old library system did not save a history of items that you borrowed.

To export your lists

In your library account, go to your Lists, and for each list you want to save click Export List.
