Your Library account username will be displayed publicly next to any comments or summaries that you contribute to the Bibliocommons catalog. You may use your real name or make one up. You created a username when you registered with the catalog.
 

How to change your username

  1. Go to the catalog.
  2. In the upper right, click Log In / My APL or your username. Choose My Settings from the dropdown menu. Log in if necessary.
  3. Click on Username from the menu bar on the left side of the page.

     
  4. Enter your new username and choose how you want any comments or reviews to be identified (either by your username or your real name). 

     

    Username guidelines are described in Bibliocommons Help
    "Your username must be unique, but otherwise you have a great deal of flexibility when you create a username. The name can be up to 24 characters long, and you can use any combination of letters and numbers, as well as underscores ( _ ). It cannot consist entirely of numbers, or use spaces or other non-alphanumeric characters. The best username is one that is easy for you to remember."

  5. Click Save Changes. If you entered a new name and someone else already has it, a message will alert you. You cannot have the same username as someone else.
