IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR CALIBRE MEMBERS
I am delighted to announce the news that so many members have been eagerly awaiting! We would like to thank the following charitable trusts for funding this work:-
Sir James Roll Charitable Trust
E M MacAndrew Trust
You can now view your book wishlists online (for our postal book services, as well as streaming). You can also add books to your wish list or remove titles you no longer require online, without the need to email or telephone our membership services team. This puts you far more in control of your own book choices. Of course if you are not a confident website user and you prefer to, you can still update your book wishlist by ringing, emailing or writing in and our team will make the changes on your behalf.
In order to access your book wishlist you must first login to our website. Each Calibre member has their own unique login to ensure your records are only accessed by you, your chosen representatives or authorised Calibre staff and volunteers. If you are unfamiliar with or have forgotten your login then please email email@example.com, supplying your full name and postcode so we can identify your membership record. Please be patient - we anticipate lots of requests!
To View your wishlist (after logging in), go to the Library page, and click on View wishlist - this is the first item under the My Account menu on the left of your screen. You can filter your wishlist to include MP3 or cassette only if you are a mixed media borrower. You can also sort your wishlist alphabetically by title and by the date order in wish you added the book request - with a choice of oldest or newest requests first - using the Sort Wishlist Box.
To Remove books you will see a "Remove" facility against each individual title which you need to click.
To Add books, browse or search from the library page. Against each individual title (towards the bottom on the left) of the book description click on the "Add to wishlist". You can continue browsing the library and selecting as many books as you like in each session.
We recommend your wishlsit is maintained at no more than 100 titles at any one time unless you are an exceptionally prolific reader. 50 titles are usually quite sufficient for the average reader, particularly if you also borrow by category.
If you are a streaming member, please be aware that the online wishlist for streaming is a separate list. If you have streamed a book and have also requested it on a postal wishlist, you may wish to delete the title from your postal wishlist to avoid getting it again. N.B. The two lists are not linked so our system cannot work this out.
Please also be aware that requested books must match the media they are available in e.g. if you are an MP3 only borrower using CDs and/or memory sticks, should you request an old title available in cassette only, you will not receive it. Most of our books (approaching 7000 titles) are now available in digital format which is what the majority of our members currently use.
