How to Save Catalog Lists and Checkout History

December 20, 2018 10:43 AM
 
 
MGPL will be moving to a new library group and online catalog starting mid-January 2019. (More info here.) Unfortunately, if you use Lists and Checkout History in the current catalog, that information will not be automatically transferred to Polaris, the new catalog. If you want to keep that info for your records, you will need to manually export it.
 
IMPORTANT: This needs to be done before January 9, because after that date you will not be able to access the current catalog and all that info will be lost.
 
We are happy to help you through this process. Visit the Info Desk or call 847-929-5101.
 

How to export My Lists from the catalog

  1. Log in to your library account and go to My Lists
  2. Select the list you want to export
  3. In that list, select the items you want to export (probably easiest to click the unlabeled Select All box next to the Select an Action menu)
  4. Under the Select An Action dropdown menu, select Print.
    • You can also email it. Note: the email will contain a lot of info from each item's record, so the email might be quite long.
  5. This will open a new window or tab with a printable list (with just the title and author). Print away!
  6. To generate a PDF from this printable list, click Print and then select “Save As PDF” as the destination instead of an actual printer.
 

How to export Checkout History from the catalog

  1. Log in to your library account and go to your Checkouts tab.
  2. Below the Personal Information tab, click Preferences.
  3. If “Show my checkout history” and “Record my checkout history” are not checked, then your checkout history has not been recorded and you will not be able to export anything.
  4. If “Show my checkout history” and “Record my checkout history” are checked, go to the Checkouts tab, then click Checkout History.
  5. Highlight the text of the items you would like to save or print, then copy-paste it into a Word document, email, text editor, or other means of saving this information for your personal records.
We are happy to help you through this process. Visit the Info Desk or call 847-929-5101.
