Educational institution cards may be issued to teachers and child-care leaders from eligible institutions.  These include elementary, middle and high schools as well as day-care centers located in Tulsa County or within the city limits of Tulsa, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Collinsville, Glenpool, Jenks, Owasso, Sand Springs, Sperry and Skiatook. 

The card is issued in the name of the institution to allow for classroom use of library materials.  The teacher or child care leader is responsible for the material borrowed on the card. Multiple cards may be issued to a single institution with proper authorization.

This card is for classroom purposes only, not for personal use.  Teachers and child-care leaders must present verification of employment, valid photo identification, and proof of current mailing address to obtain the card.  Educational institution cards expire August 1 each year and may be renewed with updated verification of employment.

Print materials and CDs are checked out for 42 days but may not be renewed.  Videos, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs check out for 14 days and may be renewed 100 times for a checkout period totaling up to one year.  Fines are charged at the same rate as regular cards.  Librarians may impose item limits for high demand subject areas.

For questions regarding educational institution cards, please contact the AskUs Hotline at 918-549-READ (7323) or at askus@tulsalibrary.org.

3. Once you are logged in, hover your mouse over the My TCCL tab. Under the column titled My Collections, click For Later.

Making Your Lists/My Shelves Public or Not
Our new catalog includes many social media aspects. You have the option of making your reading/viewing/listening lists in My Shelves (Completed, In Progress and For Later) public.

By default, items on your Completed, For Later or In Progress shelves are public. You decide how much or how little of your shelves you’d like to share with others.

To exclude a title from public view, click the Add Details link to the right of the title to display the pull-down menu, and then click the Keep private checkbox. Private items have a small lock icon next to them.

Items you add to For Later are public by default.

  • To log on to the new catalog the first time:
    • Use your library barcode number and the password you created for the previous catalog account.
    • The system will prompt you to create a username.  To protect your privacy, your username should not identify you or your address, as the username appears next to any comments you make in the library catalog.
    • The system will prompt you to enter the month and year of your birth.  Federal law prohibits minors age 13 and younger to participate in the social media features.
  • If you don’t have a password or don’t know your password, call the library’s AskUs Hotline at 918-549-7323 or inquire at a library convenient to you.
  • IMPORTANT!  If we have created a password for you, change that password by going to MY SETTINGS once you are logged on to secure your information.
  • The username you choose will have to be unique not only among TCCL customers, but among all Bibliocommons users everywhere. 
  • A “Forgot your password?” link is available in the event you forget your password.  An email with your password will be sent to the email address registered on your library account. 
  • Click on MY SETTINGS to correct or change your password, username or email address.
  • Make sure to click "Save" when changing your password or other personal information.
