Mississauga Library has upgraded to a new catalogue. You can download the new Mississauga Library app to access it.

Catalogue upgrade

Mississauga Library has launched a new, upgraded library catalogue.

We have made this change because we want to provide the best services possible to our community. The new catalogue has a better search, provides the option for users to keep track of their reading and allows users to connect and discover titles in new ways.

Mobile App

Download the library app to manage your account, check out, renew, and download titles. Available on Apple or Android devices.

Learn how to use the new catalogue and mobile app by watching our quick instructional videos.

Frequently Asked Questions

Registration allows you create a unique easy-to-remember username you can use to log in, so you don’t have to type your barcode every time you want to check your account. Registration also allows you to get personalized recommendations and contribute ratings and reviews.

You don’t, that is an optional field that you can leave blank.

You can login with your username or your library card number – that’s up to you. The reason we require all users to select a unique username is because the new catalogue has additional optional functionality, like commenting on books and keeping track of your reading on shelves. And to support this, we need all users to create a unique username. For assistance with creating an account, you can view this instructional video.

The titles you saved were not lost, they have been migrated to your new account but first have to be imported.

You can import all of the items from your lists. Just go to your Dashboard and then click the Import button to import your lists from the old catalogue. This is a one-time process.

You can then access them by going to My Collections and clicking on Lists and editing your items as needed. For assistance with importing your lists, you can view this instructional video.
