Two new tricks on the Public Access Catalog

The Online Library Catalog isn't just a list of books!

Well, yes: you can search through the collections of the SALS and MVLS library systems. But it also gives you access to your library account: log on to place requests, perform renewals, see what items you have out, their due dates, and fines (not that you would ever have fines).

In addition, the online catalog has recently been updated. You can now:

Look for items currently on the shelf
Check online to see what's available at the library (especially handy if you don't have time to browse). Jot down the title or call number, and ask at the desk if you need help locating the book, audiobook, movie or CD you seek.

Create a personal username
Previously, logging into your patron account required the thirteen digit barcode number on the back of your library card. Now you can make up your own, as simple or memorable as you like.

The online catalog is accessible from any PC/Mac with internet access, and is also available within all libraries. Please let us know if you have questions or trouble using the catalog.
