New aadl.org features: Optional Checkout History and More
Thanks to all your comments and suggestions, we've rolled out some new features for aadl.org that will give you better information about how you use the Library.
The biggest news is the addition of an optional Checkout history that will allow you to easily keep track of the items you've previously checked out from the library, and even search through them for those times when you can't remember if you've read something. You can activate the recording of checkouts on your My Account page (just check 'Record Checkouts' in your preferences), and you can view any checkouts you make from then on from the 'Checkout History' button.

In addition, we've made some enhancements to our checkouts and requests listings, including showing the full title and author, allowing you to set a default pickup location for requests (on that edit > preferences page, again!), and, removing the checkbox next to your checked-out items when they can't be renewed. In addition, to suit your scrolling vs. clicking preference, you can specify how many checkouts and requests we should show on your My Account summary page. You'll still see all your current Checkouts and Requests on their respective pages, but you can now decide how many of each show up when you first visit your account.
We've also added a new button to your account called Wireless Devices, which allows patrons who use the Library's wireless internet service (available at Downtown, Malletts Creek, and West Branch) to manage their registered devices and add new ones.
There's more to come in the near future, but for now, take these new services for a spin, and post your comments here (or contact us) to let us know what you think, especially if you find a bug!
Thanks for using aadl.org!
