Many Sno-Isle Libraries customers also have library cards with Seattle Public Library and/or with King County Library System.  If they have already registered at either of those libraries, that name won’t be available if they register with Sno-Isle.  Every account must have a unique username across the entire BiblioCommons system (over 5 million registered users).    However, Seattle Public and King County have a unique partnership.  Since they have so many overlapping customers, they made arrangements with BiblioCommons to allow their respective customers to have a single username which will work to log in to either SPL or KCLS.  When this arrangement was made, before Sno-Isle had decided to use BiblioCommons, it was set up to be a 2-library partnership.  Sno-Isle has asked BiblioCommons whether it would be possible to expand to more than two libraries.  At this time the answer is no.  If BiblioCommons ever adjusts the software we will explore the potential, but at this time there is no expectation or plan for this to happen.
