Aldiko gives you access to the online catalogs of a large number of libraries. In order to borrow ebooks from a library's online catalog, you must first:

  • have subscribed to this library;
  • add this library to Aldiko.

Adding a library

To add a library's online catalog to Aldiko, follow the following procedure:

  1. Tap the Catalogs button at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Tap the + button.
  3. Tap the Libraries option.
  4. Find the desired library by browsing the list.
  5. Tap the + button next to the name of the desired library.

  6. Aldiko displays the login screen of the library's website.
  7. Log in using your account ID and password for this library.

Please note that authentication systems vary from one library to the other. In some cases you may not be asked to authenticate when you add a catalog, but rather later on, when you borrow or reserve a publication. If you encounter any problems during the authentication process (for example, if you've forgotten your password), please contact your library.

Although you can add multiple library catalogs to the application, you will only be able to borrow publications from the libraries to which you are subscribed.

Deleting a library

To delete a library's online catalog from Aldiko, follow the procedure below:

  1. Tap the Catalogs button at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Tap the three dots to the right of the name of the library you want to delete.
  3. Tap Delete.
