The documentation on this page covers the steps full and associate level member institutions, funnel coordinators, and funnel members need to take to activate their PCC Directory accounts (after receiving their temporary passwords), login, update their profiles, and report their statistics.

Login:

Once you have activated your account, you may use this URL to login to the PCC Directory: https://pccdirectory.loc.gov

Passwords:

Passwords must be at least 16 characters in length.

Passwords expire every 60 days. One week prior to password expiration, the system will email you a link to change your password. If you allow your password to expire, you will not be able to login. If this happens, please contact us at [email protected] so we can reset your password.

If your password has not yet expired, you can use the "Forgot Password?" link on the login page to get a new password.

Accounts are automatically locked if not logged into for 90 days. Resetting passwords when notified by an email prior to password expiration, and logging into the account with the new password, will avoid having accounts locked because of inactivity.

Profiles:

Full and associate level institutions may use the following guidelines for setting up profiles:

The following information is for funnel coordinators and funnel members. It provides information for setting up profiles and an explanation of how funnel member and coordinator profiles are set up in the PCC Directory:

Statistics:

Beginning October 1, 2018, the PCC Directory is to be used by PCC members for recording and running reports on PCC statistics. Please report BIBCO, CONSER, NACO, and SACO statistics at minimum twice a year. Members may optionally enter statistics more frequently than twice a year (e.g., on a monthly or quarterly basis), if preferred.

Deadlines: April 15th (for entering October to March statistics) and October 15th (for entering April to September statistics).
