SCPL Catalog Update
We've just upgraded our catalog software -- the new version should be faster and easier to use than ever before.
If you have bookmarks to pages inside the old catalog, please update them to take advantage of all the new catalog has to offer.
Some of the My Account functions have changed as part of this software update. If you're wondering what's new or feeling a bit lost, we've put together a My Account Tutorial that will tell you how to manage your holds, renew your items, create book lists, and more.
We're also happy to announce that the New Items Lists are looking great. The Lists now show up directly in the catalog. They are searchable, sortable, and the author's names now appear directly in the list. In addition, those of you using Chrome or Safari web browsers will find them much easier to use.
You may see ongoing changes to the catalog and website as staff work on some outstanding issues. We're working hard to make this transition as smooth as possible. Thank you for your patience, and have fun exploring the new catalog!
