Sorry, but patron records are purged frequently. The data purge is part of UW and UW Libraries policy. Please see this FAQ for more information:

One way to keep track of books that you borrow is to use the "My Lists" option of your UW Library account. This data is different and separate from the information about which books have been checked out by you. Catalog data remains in your account until you delete it or your account is deactivated. As an example, click on the following link to a book in our catalog. At the top of the webpage are blue icons that provide options to "Save to My Lists" and "Save Record." Use these icons to save the book information.
