Featured Item Lists

Featured Lists

Quite often, patrons come into the library and ask us if we have a list of our new materials.  In the past, most departments printed a list of their new materials and kept them in binders.  Patrons would ask us to check the status of titles and if checked out, we would place the items on reserve for them.

Our current library catalog allows us to create those lists online and make them available with the click of a mouse.  These are called Featured Lists and they highlight a variety of new materials including books, music, DVDs, and audio books.  Since these lists are on the catalog, you get real-time information about the status of an item.  If the title you want is checked out, you can click a link from the record (request this title) and place the item on reserve.  We love to see you in person, but this allows you to browse new materials from the comfort of your home.  Several libraries and Central Departments have featured lists on the catalog, so be sure to look through everything.  From the home page of the catalog (see below) look under Quick Links in the yellow box and click on Featured Item Lists.  Happy searching!
