Good day!

There are new video tutorials related to Leap!  Access them here:

Courtesy & Pay Card Registration

When registering non-resident patrons, please keep the following in mind:
  1. Use the correct patron code (ex. Courtesy instead of Adult).
  2. Identify the status via the patron's middle name (ex. "(COURTESY)" ).
  3. It is strongly recommended to place a free text block on the patron record (ex. "COURTESY - NOAR Use Only").
You can review the relevant policy in the P&P manual here:
Leap Beta: Become a VPN VIP
Do you use Leap?  We are looking for libraries to test out heightened security measures we are developing.  Libraries looking to participate will be asked to use Leap on non-BCCLS computers (or any tablet/mobile device) in order to make use of secure VPN connection before accessing Leap.  Please contact trevor@bccls.org to volunteer.
If you have any questions or comments, please let us know!
