Q. How do I find a record of books that I have already returned?

When books are checked out they show up in My Account on the library site, but they disappear after I've returned them. I accidentally returned some books without noting down any of their information (even title) and was hoping to be able to see what I have checked out in the last year.

Answer

To protect your privacy, the library doesn't retain this information.

A good way to keep track of your sources is to use a citation manager. These software programs let you build a collection of references, including to books and articles you've read and might want to cite.

Whenever you look up a book in the catalog you can export the citation to your reference manager, thus tracking your sources. Here's a screen shot of how to use the citation manager Zotero with HoyaSearch:

Find the item you want, and then click "Export RIS":

 

You'll be prompted by your citation manager to make sure you want to add the file.
