Why do I have to register?

Registration is a one-time process that allows you to create an easy-to-remember username that you can use instead of your barcode to check your account. Registration is required to take advantage of all of the features of the new catalog, including the ability to manage your renewals and holds, contribute ratings and reviews, and follow others to see what they’re enjoying.
