Cool New Features of the New Library Catalog

What's New and Cool about the new Library Catalog?
  • It's simple! The new catalog offers simplified searching. Misspelled or mistyped words won't end your search!
  • You can suggest new titles for the Library to purchase right from the Catalog.
  • You can add items to a personal, private list. You could use this list to keep track of books you've read or want to read. Only you can see this list when you log in.
  • You can place your own comments or reviews for items in the Catalog.
  • You can add tags (personally meaningful terms) to items in the Catalog.
  • You can set up an RSS feed and be notified when new items are available by authors or subjects you select.
  • You can place requests on different items at one time without having to retype your Library card number! (there is still a reserve charge for each item)
  • You can receive notices by e-mail and decide for yourself when you want to receive them!
  • Book reviews are available right from the Catalog.
  • You can browse the shelf virtually by looking for other books in the same area.
  • It features book lists including new books for adult, teen and children, DVDs and best sellers.
