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.

Passwords:

Passwords must be at least 16 characters in length and expire every 60 days. 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.

Login:

Once you have successfully changed your password, you may use this URL to login to your account: https://pccdirectory.loc.gov

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 directory is to be used for recording and running reports on 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 October to March statistics) and October 15th (for April to September statistics).
