What is the Reading History feature and how does it work?
If you wish to keep a list of what you have borrowed, you may sign in on My Account, choose My Reading History, and then choose the Opt In button. This begins the collection of titles you borrow from the Minuteman system. For further details on Reading History, see: http://www.mln.lib.ma.us/catalog/readinghistory.htm
Why am I unable to delete items from my Reading History?
If a user's Reading History exceeds 200 entries, entries 201+ in the user's Reading History list cannot be deleted. This has been reported for Internet Explorer only at this time. We recommend that you use Firefox or another browser to delete items if necessary. Our library software vendor is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.
One (or more) of the titles in my Reading History is listed as "Information unavailable". Why is this?
Occasionally, due to regular database maintenance or to the withdrawing of items, we must remove records from our database. Unfortunately, this results in the loss of information about titles which may have been in your Reading History.
How can I export the contents of one of my saved Lists or my Reading History in a usable format (like Excel)?
Have you wanted to export the contents of one of your saved Lists or your Reading History in a usable format, one that you can use in Excel, for example?
Here are the steps to do just that:
Column C: Author
Column F: Title
Column Q: Edition
Column AQ: ISBN
Column AU: Subject Headings
I deleted all items in my Reading History but I am still unable to opt-out.
This is a known issue and our vendor is currently working on it. We will update this FAQ when a fix has been implemented. (Updated 06/07/13)
