New Gender Option in Polaris and Leap

Home > Articles > New Gender Option in Polaris and Leap

In March, we shared with members the option to mark a patron’s gender as “N/A” in Polaris and Leap during registration. We are excited to announce that you can now select “Non-Binary” as well!

Want to add pronouns to a patron’s account? SHARE recommends using the “Others” field under Attributes during registration. This field will not show up on any slips or emails but can be used as a tool to help your staff properly address your patrons.
