We are always looking to enhance your experience of using the library. With the recent expansion of our main location in Westampton, the addition of a 260 seat auditorium and an extension of our online features, 2013 has been a busy year for us! As we move forward into 2014, we are looking to take the next step into being a library of the 21st century with the debut of a new online catalog!
This upgraded service provides several new and enhanced features that will make searching our collection simple, convenient and intuitive.
This new search feature allows you to immediately enter the information you are looking for. There’s no need to select AUTHOR before you search for James Patterson…there’s no need to type Patterson, James either!
It even knows what you’re looking for before you’ve finished typing!
After entering what you’re looking for, the results will be displayed in order of relevance to your search. Using the search limits on the left hand side, you can limit what items are displayed by format, BCLS location, author, subject, publication date and collection!
Once you have found the item you are looking for, simply click on the title. A detailed description of all copies in our library system will be displayed followed by a summary, an excerpt of the book, and reviews. You also have the option of requesting the item, sending the title information to yourself via text message or email, placing the title on a customizable list, and more!
Along with providing a great search experience, our new catalog highlights library news, events, and resources and gives you direct access to New York Times Best-Seller lists for a multitude of subjects, genres and popular items! If you see an item on a Best-Seller list that you want, simply click Find In My Library and place a hold on the item in seconds!
The catalog is now live!
