Online Library Card Patron/Borrower Registration

eCARD - Verified Online Patron/Borrower Library Card Registration

eCARD Features

  • Online and onsite patron/borrower registration
  • Address Verification
  • Name Verification
  • Customized to your library's policies
  • Customized registration forms
  • Fits within your library's website
  • Integrated 3rd party data, such as tax records and library districts
  • Customized Email confirmations

The eCARD system allows patrons/borrowers to self-register for a library card online, remotely or onsite, adding convenience for the patron and time-savings for staff. The eCARD online patron/borrower library card registration and address verification verifies and standardizes the address information entered by the patron in real time. Zip+4 enhancement allows libraries to maximize GIS mapping that can be used for service assessment and funding purposes.

When a patron enters a valid United States or Canadian address using eCARD and the address entered complies with your library’s policies, the software will allow creation of the patron record. Addresses are validated via an approved US/Canadian Postal Service database provider. eCARD can also provide residency verification of the patron beyond address standardization, including name verification and third party data such as tax records.

Registrations make use of integrated library system (ILS) APIs or the ILS’s existing registration form. All other functionality is hosted on Quipu's servers. Registration form fields and policies are determined by the library, as each implementation is based on local specifications. Services areas can be defined to reflect current patron policies, using zip codes, cities, counties, or specific local data, such as tax records.
