How Do I...

  • 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.

If you have ANY trouble with the log-in and registration process, please call us at 918-549-7323 or talk to a library staff member at your neighborhood library.

Privacy is primarily managed through the “My Settings” link near the top right of the page.

Select the “Privacy” tab, and you can then choose to enable or disable the Recently Returned (Reading History) feature, as well as setting your shelves to be private (for your eyes only).

My Settings page

If you don’t make your shelves private, other people will be able to see them when they click on your username (which appears next to any comments, ratings, reviews, etc. that you make on BiblioCommons.

When creating lists of titles, you can also choose to make them private, so that only you can view them.

After you click, “Create a list,” you will get a box to fill out to describe your list.  The privacy option appears at the bottom of that box.
