Using the Library Catalog (9)

November 26, 2007

Do you know how to request items in the public OPAC? What about the book cart? If we don’t know, then we can’t help our patrons.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:
1. Do a search in the OPAC for books on starting a small business.
2. Limit your search to items published after 2000.
3. Add two books to your book cart, then place holds on these items from the book cart. (If you don’t have room on your hold list, don’t worry about that step)
4. Take the survey.

Here are some videos as a refresher:

    I had forgotten that you could use the Book Cart to request several things at one time. Good to know.

    Thanks for all the helpful hints.

    Like Beth, I had forgotten how to do this. I was glad to see it saves items in the book cart even from multiple searches. This will come in handy when a patron calls and asks me to put several movies on hold for him/her. Thanks, Jenny & Kyle!

    On using the library catalog video it looks like you typed in the entire library card number. Also, Main no longer has a Spanish Collection. I know, nitpicking.
