Standard Catolg

The standard catalog can be used to look up:

1.) Books available in the physical library

2.) DVD/Videos available in the physical library 

3.) ebooks accessible online  (If a login is requested- contact the Director of Information Resources)

4.)eVideos accessible online  (If a login is requested- contact the Director of Information Resources)

One the left side you can see Subject recommendations that can help you narrow your search.

You can also limit your search by Material Type on the left side. If you want only resources you can access online, use this to limit your results to those materials.

Under the results of your search, you will also see detail about format and availability of the resources.  

 

When you select one particular resource the full detail screen will open. The full detail box has a lot of information!  The most important being:

LOCATION                   CALL NUMBER                     STATUS

This is found in the bar just above Shelf Browse

We can access books that are held by other libraries.  These books can be borrowed, but it takes time to request the shipment.  Knowing your assignment time frame will be important if the book needs to come from another library!

The little icon next to those items is a way in which you can send the information to your phone. When you come into the library to get a book, you have the information you need without having to look it back up!

Additional Materials Not in the Catalog

There are also many magazines (both current and back issues) and newspapers in the library holdings.  

 

Little Book Swap Corner

The library has limited space and therefore does not have a Fiction reading section.  However, there is a "Little Book Swap Corner" located in the library for patrons to share books.  Take a book or leave a book!
