Be Your Own Librarian: How to Find and Order Items with the Online Catalog!

Ever wonder how cool librarians can sift through all of the titles in our system to find what you’re looking for? Wonder no longer! Our entire catalog is online and available to anyone with internet access. You can put a hold on any title that you find with your library card. Access the catalog from our site with “Catalog Quick Search” on the right-hand bar, or go straight to the online catalog at

From the catalog, you can search whatever you’re looking for, then narrow it by using any of the options in the “Refine By” bar on the left-hand side. You can narrow your search by format, subject, title, author, library item is located at, or any of the many other useful options available.

Click on an item, and see where it’s located, whether it’s checked in, publishing information, summary, and subject(s). Scroll down further and see other books like it.

Request it with the “Request It” icon to the right of the title, then enter your library card number and pin, and choose your pick-up location. Order multiple books at once by putting them in your cart with the shopping basket icon under “Additional actions;” then click “My Cart” in the upper right-hand corner to order them or save them for future use by adding them to a list.
