Why do I need a new username?

The new catalog is used by over 10 million people, and each one needs a unique username so they can publicly rate items, create and share lists, and write reviews. This new username functions as a profile name in the new catalog.

If you had a username in the old catalog, you can continue to use it to check out books, use the new catalog, and work on library computers.
