Q: I need to link my library accounts, but I have different usernames.

I work for MCPL. I set up an account with them, not knowing that we would be able to link libraries in the future. I want to keep my MCPL as my primary.

Good afternoon,

While you can link multiple library cards to a single BiblioCommons username/account, you can't link multiple BiblioCommons usernames/accounts together. Not to worry! If you unregister all but one username, the library card(s) won't be associated with a catalog username anymore, so they can be linked to the username that remains (this can be your MCPL Username).

First: Choose which account you want to keep. This will be your username and primary account when you link the other cards.

Heads up! All content you've created (Shelves, Lists, etc.) with a particular username will be deleted when that username is unregistered. You may want to replicate those things in the other catalog before they are deleted.

Next: Contact us to let us know which account you want to unregister, or if you prefer you can contact Kansas City Public Library or Mid-Continent Public Library directly to unregister the other username associated with that library card number.

Then follow these steps:

  1. Log into your active catalog account.
  2. Go to My Settings.
  3. Select Manage Cards.

  4. Select Link a library card.

  5. Enter your other library card information and Link the Card to confirm!

Please let us know if you need further assistance.
