Library catalog back online

The upgrade took less time than expected so the library catalog is back up and running.   Some patrons may have trouble viewing the “My Account” page, but this doesn’t affect placing requests in the catalog.    The issue is being worked on.  Thank you for your patience!

In the meantime, go ahead and browse for some awesome summer reading titles.   Visit the “New Books” tab to check out all the new materials we’re getting.

Services such as checking materials in and out at the Service Desk will continue to operate but will be done manually.All databases for locating articles and e-books will be available. 

If you need assistance in locating books or other materials during this time-period, please contact the library staff at the Service Desk for assistance. Thank you for your patience.

Logging in to ‘My Account’ – minor change

In the past, Wheelock patrons have needed to enter a ‘111320’ prefix + barcode to reserve items or access the My Account features in the FLO Catalog – the new Fenway One Card includes this prefix, so the extra step is not necessary.

A reminder: Patrons can use the My Account option to review items you have currently checked out, renew materials, and check on the status of items you have requested from other libraries. Please contact the library circulation desk at or 617-879-2220 if you are accessing your account for the first time and need the default PIN number.
