Online patron account address now begins with HTTPS

As of today, May 31, 2012, the URL (web address) of your patron account online will begin with "https" instead of "http." The extra "s" means your personal information is protected by Secured Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL allows the web browser to communicate with your account in a way that prevents eavesdropping and tampering with patron account information.

You may notice that your browser no longer remembers your barcode and password when you log in to your WCCLS account online. If this is the case, check to make sure that your browser is set to remember passwords. In Internet Explorer, you should find that information under Internet Options > Content > AutoComplete Settings. Make sure that the box next to User names and passwords on forms is checked.

This change to https does not require you to do anything additional with your patron account login. Thank you for using and the Polaris catalog!
