Libraries to consolidate patron database (June 3)

MEDIA RELEASE

The Hawaii State Public Library System’s (HSPLS) patron database will undergo a purge of inactive accounts Monday, June 3.

Removing these accounts will provide an updated, more accurate database for our business and management uses.

Inactive accounts are accounts with expired library cards and:

* No borrowed library material in the past five (5) years

* No outstanding items, charges or fees

* Whose card holders are former residents who have relocated from Hawaii

The record of a patron who has not borrowed library material in the past five (5) years or more may be purged. Patrons who visit their local library, present their library card, and discover that their record has been purged can reactivate their card, free-of-charge, by completing a new library card application form and presenting it with their card and valid identification.

The database clean up procedure will not affect currently active library patrons.

Internet computer users who do not borrow materials and only use their library card to access the library system’s Internet stations or subscription databases remotely, may notice that their accounts have been purged.

These patrons can reactivate their accounts, free-of-charge, by completing a new application form and presenting it with their card and valid identification at any HSPLS library.
