Making Your Lists/My Shelves Public or Not
Our new catalog includes many social media aspects. You have the option of making your reading/viewing/listening lists in My Shelves (Completed, In Progress and For Later) public.

By default, items on your Completed, For Later or In Progress shelves are public. You decide how much or how little of your shelves you’d like to share with others.

To exclude a title from public view, click the Add Details link to the right of the title to display the pull-down menu, and then click the Keep private checkbox. Private items have a small lock icon next to them.

Items you add to For Later are public by default.

  • To log on to the new catalog the first time:
    • Use your library barcode number and the password you created for the previous catalog account.

  • If you don’t have a password or don’t know your password, call the library’s AskUs Hotline at 918-549-7323 or inquire at a library convenient to you.
  • IMPORTANT!  If we have created a password for you, change that password by going to MY SETTINGS once you are logged on to secure your information.
  • The username you choose will have to be unique not only among TCCL customers, but among all Bibliocommons users everywhere. 
  • A “Forgot your password?” link is available in the event you forget your password.  An email with your password will be sent to the email address registered on your library account.

If you don’t make your shelves private, other people will be able to see them when they click on your username (which appears next to any comments, ratings, reviews, etc. that you make on BiblioCommons.

When creating lists of titles, you can also choose to make them private, so that only you can view them.

After you click, “Create a list,” you will get a box to fill out to describe your list.  The privacy option appears at the bottom of that box.

The Storm Prediction Center of the National Weather Service includes maps, tracks, averages and summaries that apply to tornadic activity in the United States.  The Norman office of the National Weather Service keeps a historic list of tornado data by county.  The EF Scale became operational on February 1, 2007 and is used to assign a tornado a 'rating' based on estimated wind speeds and related damage.

Earthquakes are measured with the Richter Magnitude Scale developed by Charles F. Richter of California Institute of Technology in 1935. Here is a summary of the Richter scale:
Magnitude less than 3.5: Generally not felt, but recorded.
Magnitude 3.5-5.4: Often felt, but rarely causes damage.
Magnitude under 6.0: At most slight damage to well-designed buildings over small regions.
Magnitude 6.1-6.9: Can be destructive in areas up to 100 kilometers across where people live.
Magnitude 7.0-7.9: Major earthquake. Can cause serious damage over larger areas.
Magnitude 8 or greater: Great earthquake. Can cause serious damage in areas several hundred kilometers across.
Earthquakes are also measured by the Mercalli Intensity Scale which is a longer, more detailed scale. Both the Richter Scale and the Mercalli Scale can be seen on the U.S. Geological Survey website.

Water weighs 62.4 pounds per cubic foot. When a vehicle stalls in water, the water's momentum is transferred to the car. For each foot the water rises, 500 pounds of lateral force is applied to the car. For each foot the water rises up the side of the car, the car displaces 1,500 pounds of water. In effect, the car weighs 1,500 pounds less for each foot the water rises. Most vehicles will float in just 2 feet of water.
