Monday fun Thing – Library World

This is a repeat of an app from last year, but it will be a perennial one, so get used to it.

libraryworldLibrary World is our circulation and catalog system. With this app, you can search for any book in the library, see if it’s available, and put it on hold. So, if you think of a book you really want to read at 7.30 at night, look it up on Library World and put a hold on it. When  I come in the next morning, I’ll get an email letting me know that you’ve requested that book and I’ll grab it and check it out to you.

The app is available for iOS as well as Android. When you set it up, it will ask for a library name and password. Our name is “hill top” (two words, no capitals) and you can leave the password blank.

And don’t forget the web version of the Library Catalog! Go there now! Bookmark it!

App of the Week – LibraryWorld

This week’s App of the Week is a practical one. It’s LibraryWorld.

libraryworldLibraryWorld is Hill Top’s library catalog. It’s already available on the web. You can search to see if we’ve got a book from your phone or tablet. The app has a feature that allows you to put a book on hold – you can use this either to request to be the next person to get a book that’s already checked out, or to have me pull a book for you.

The app is available for iOS as well as Android. When you set it up, it will ask for a library name and password. Our name is “hill top” (two words, no capitals) and you can leave the password blank.

This can come in handy when you’re working on a paper and need some more information. Just do a quick search for the topic you’re researching and if you find something, put it on hold and pick it up the next morning!
