Reading History

Reading History is an optional feature of the Thousand Oaks Library catalog. Users may choose to “Save Reading History” to use this feature and save a record of everything they have checked out from the library. Once the feature is enabled, the system will begin recording items checked out from that point. Users may start or stop using this feature, as well as delete any or all reading history at any time. Currently, this feature is only available to track printed materials, DVDs, music CDs and Spoken Word. eMedia items will not be in the Reading History.

The Library takes patron confidentiality seriously. Only the account holder with the proper login credentials will be able to view and manage the Reading History feature.
