Looking for The Library Catalog on our new website? Look no further on the home page than the Catalog Quick Search box. It is at the top of the right column above the How Do I? and the Events Calendar. You can now search the catalog right from our home page. Just enter your search keywords, choose your search type in the drop down box below that, and then hit your key. You can also renew, see a list of everything you have checked out, or place a requests right from this box by clicking on the Renew/Check My Account button.

Find Articles and More…

Looking to Find (newspaper and magazine) articles, Morningstar reports, take sample tests and more? The Library’s subscription Online Databases are now in the Research Tools section of our website. Research Tools is in the navigation menu on the left. Just put your mouse cursor over it and you will see an expanding menu to your right. Research Tools is the new home for all of The Library’s online tools for helping your with your research. This includes books and more in the Library Catalog: Find Books, DVDs and more…, Find Articles and more…, an All-In-One Search that allows you to search all of these resources in one search, and finally, our Best of the Web, The Library staff’s list of recommended web sites.

Reading The Library Web Site

If you are having trouble reading the text on The Library’s new web site, you can easily increase the font size using the options on your browser’s Menu bar. Go to View, click on Text Size, and then choose your size from the range of sizes that display from smallest to largest. Depending upon the size you choose, the text may pop out of the boxes on the page slightly, but the site was designed to allow this flexibility.

Now that The Library is full tilt into upping its service quotient to the community with more weekend hours and programming than ever before, what better time to do a little spring clean up on The Library web site? We’ve highlighted the most vital news and events stories to make them easier to find and read, including this box containing the “featured” item that you should know about now. The colors are brighter and the presentation is cleaner. The new look should make the site more navigable and user friendly than ever, while better reflecting the energy and commitment of Library staff to providing you with the finest possible service.
