In the next few weeks, the library will be rolling out a brand new version of our online catalog. Before we go live with the new catalog, we wanted to give everyone a sneak peek at the new features that will be available.
Probably the most shocking difference with the new catalog is the first page that you will see when you go to the catalog to search for an item.
You will see a variety of book covers sliding across the screen. This is our “Book River” that we can use to promote a variety of selections from our catalog. If you see something in the “Book River” that catches your fancy, simply click on the cover of the book and you will be taken to its record in our system.
On the right-hand side of the “Book River” you will see the area that has the basic search box as well as the area that will allow you to log into your account. Simply click in the blue box that says search, type in your title, author or subject and click on go and you will get your search results.
We will continue the tour of the library’s new catalog over the next few weeks. Up next will be the search result page.
