Digital Library Updates

The Digital Library had a few updates this summer and is better than ever and ready to serve your students and teachers! We made one change to the circ policies in order to provide better service for the 6th grade 1:1 iPad initiative.  The number of checkouts allowed is now 2.  We hope this will free up some items so there won't be as many holds.
  • One change that may be helpful to bilingual campuses is the ability to switch the Digital Library to a Spanish interface.  You will find the "switch" to turn this on in the upper right corner.
  • Design updates to the format icons
  • The default search behavior has changed from "OR searching to "AND" searching.  Previously, when users searched for an author like Veronica Roth, any title with Veronica or Roth in the title and author name were returned.  The new search behavior will only return titles with Veronica and Roth in the title or author name providing more relevant searches.  
  • New mouse over options to the cover images to allow users to borrow or place a hold, sample, add to Wish List, share, and see title details directly from the cover image.
