Li­brary Card ‘Purge’ May Sur­prise Users

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER / DECEMBER 1, 2010 / -

The Hawaii State Li­brary Sys­tem purged its files of all in­ac­tive ac­counts on Nov. 22, in­clud­ing pa­trons who haven’t used their cards in the past three years to bor­row ma­te­ri­als.

Those res­i­dents who only use their li­brary cards for In­ter­net and other on­line ac­cess also may no­tice “the purge.”

Fear not. Ac­counts can be re-ac­ti­vated free of charge by fill­ing out a new ap­pli­ca­tion with valid iden­ti­fi­ca­tion at any li­brary branch.

Re­mov­ing in­ac­tive ac­counts from the pa­tron data­base “will pro­vide an up­dated, more ac­cu­rate data­base for our busi­ness and man­age­ment uses,” of­fi­cials ex­plained.
