    Home Page
    The first page you see is the library home page. It is filled with links to reading resources and research resources.

    To get to search the catalog, you need to click the "Catalog" tab at the top of the page.


    There are 4 different choices on the left side of the page. The first is Library Search

    1. Library Search
    Simply type in what you know about the resource: keyword, title, author, subject, or series name. If you hit enter, it will do a keyword search. If you want to search a specific area, click that button (Title, Author, etc.)  There are 3 other tabs.

    • Power: Clicking Power tab allows you to be more specific in your library search. You can choose multiple words with boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT).
    • Visual: Visual search is a way to browse subjects without typing in any words.  All the items are by category.
    • Categories: You can browse books that have been placed in different kinds of categories (like romance, animals, mystery, adventure, etc.)

    2. Webpath Express
    This allows you to search your keywords on selected websites that have been chosen to be the best for students. This is MUCH better than a Google search.

    3. Resource Lists
    You can save lists of books or websites that you find, so you can easily find them again when you are using the catalog later. You can also save lists and give them particular names. If you want students to use them, you can make them "Public." These lists can contain books and websites that you discovered using the library search.

    4. My Info
    Clicking this tab allows you to view your library information: books you have checked out, due dates, and any holds you have placed.


    Note: Placing Holds
    When you see a description of a book that you like, there is a "Hold It" button at the upper right corner of the screen. You will receive an email when the book is ready to pick up.
