    New Features

    • You can search by author, title, keyword, or subject -- or a combination of these -- and receive results tailored to your request. One search box is used for all searches.
    • Searching will become more relevant. Items that most closely resemble your search will show up at the top of your results page.
    • Faceted searching means that you can further refine your results -- for example, limit results to available materials at your preferred library or just see results matching a particular material type (book, CD, DVD, etc.).
    • "Did you mean?" suggestions account for misspellings in search terms.
    • You can see relevant EBSCO database articles within the catalog search.
    • You can see relevant eBooks and eAudiobook selections from OverDrive within the catalog search.
    • Social features such as community tagging and links to Goodreads reviews allow you to discuss your library finds with fellow readers. (The link to Goodreads is temporarily unavailable.  We apologize for the inconvenience.)
    • Reading history will allow you to maintain a list of the materials you check out from The Library. No more wondering if you've read a particular book before.
    • Create lists of materials that you would like to read, your favorite books on a particular subject, or any other topic of your choice.
    • Renew all of your materials online with one click.
    • Check where you are in line to receive held materials.
