How can I see what I have checked out right now, or have checked out in the past?

Is there a way to look at my account in HOLLIS?

Access current loans and requests


Once you’ve signed in to HOLLIS, you will find “My Account/Renew,” “My Loans,” and “My Requests” in the menu under your name at the top of the page. There are more details about the benefits of signing in on the HOLLIS User Guide, and more details about renewals in our FAQ, Renewal (Library Materials).

If you would like to keep a record of your current loans, you can select all or some of the items in the list and then use the "push to" menu (ellipsis icon) to export the citations to Excel, Zotero, email, etc.


Access past loans


The library does not retain this information. For privacy reasons (and patron protection), we don't keep long-term records of past borrowing. Instead, we recommend that you make your own list. One option is to use HOLLIS’s “My Favorites” lists (see the “Save & Cite” section of our HOLLIS User Guide), but we prefer exporting to a citation management tool such as Zotero.
