News and Announcements

Published on Thu, 04/10/2014 - 3:29pm

On April 9, after months of preparation, we debuted a new catalog system as we joined the Central Library Consortium! Log into your account or search our catalog using the links on the upper left of our home page. Take some time to explore the many new options available to UAPL cardholders, including saved searches, saved title lists, and personal borrowing history. We've created a how-to guide to get you started with some of the new features. You can also browse over 4.5 million items from the collections of 14 Central Ohio library systems. If you're not already, we encourage you to get into the habit of placing holds on the items you want to ensure the quickest delivery possible to the UAPL branch of your choice.
