    Clear Browser Cache

    When you sign into your library account, your browser saves session cookies from our website. This improves your experience with the site. If you experience login errors, however, this means there might be old cookies interfering with the new sign in. To test for this, try signing into your account using a private or incognito tab. If you are able to sign in this way, then you should clear the old cookies from your browser cache.

    Instructions

    Clearing the cache varies by browser. The following links will help you find instructions specific to your browser:

    Please note: You can delete all of your saved cookies, but this will log you out of other websites. We recommend you only delete cookies specific to our catalog. To do this, find your list of saved cookies, search for idfalls.ent.sirsi.net, and delete anything listed.

    Open Saved Lists

      Back to top

    If you used the My Lists feature in our legacy catalog, obsolete items in those lists could cause account login problems. To resolve this:

    • Sign into the legacy catalog at catalog.ifpl.org.
    • Click the My List link in the top, right corner.
    What does this look like on my screen?

    Screen capture of the My Lists link in the legacy catalog

    • Open any secondary lists located under the Other Lists dropdown (Note: You may not have any secondary lists).

    Simply opening these lists causes them to update and instantly remove the obsolete content creating the login error. All you need to do is open each list. However, to prevent future login errors caused by these lists, we recommend you clear them out completely and only use the list feature in our main catalog at idfalls.ent.sirsi.net.
