Have you ever seen an interesting book or video in our catalog that you want to follow up on later, but don’t want to (or can’t) request at that particular moment? What did you do? Try to remember it? Write it down on paper? Email yourself a link?
You’ve now got an easier option! We’ve just introduced a new feature in the library catalog called “My Lists”. With My Lists you can permanently save lists of library items that get stored in “My Account”. You can make lists reflect whatever you want. They could be on a topic like “dogs” or “travel”, a “wish list” of books you want to read or request, or a bibliography for a school assignment – it’s up to you!
While you’re searching our catalog, look for a button next to each title that says “Add to Cart”. You’ll then be asked to login to your account and can add the title to an existing list or create a new list. Go to “My Account” to view the lists you’ve built. You can make a hold request directly from My Lists for any titles that are available (remember some materials, like entertainment DVDs and music CDs cannot be requested).
Also, you don’t need to use My Lists to build lists of books you’ve already read or checked out. Remember, we have a My Reading History feature that will automatically do that for you. Just turn it on and everything you check out from that point on will be saved in a convenient list.
Try it out and then leave a comment to let us know what you think!
