New Catalog

Students and families can now click on this link to try out the New Library Catalog.

Choose Spooner Elementary and CATALOG to see this first screen. What do you notice?

If you look to the right, you will see four tabs at the top. This screen above is called BASIC. The next tab is for a POWER search. Then comes a VISUAL search that looks like this:

Just click on one of the categories to look for books about some popular subjects.

On the left side of the catalog you see three tabs going down. The first one is called Library Search. That is where we found the VISUAL search screen.

Now, click on the words DESTINY QUEST just below "Library Search".

Isn't this a cool screen?
There is a lot to see and learn about on this screen. Destiny Quest shows what the Top 10 books checked out from our library are. It also shows what new books have arrived at the library.

Destiny Quest is a great place to search for books. Look for the box that says FIND and type in a subjet that you want to find a book about. Click GO!

Dog books are very popular at Spooner Elementary. This search shows what the screen looks like when you search for the word "dogs". There are 633 books and other materials with the word dogs. Wow, that is a lot of dog books!

There is a lot more to this new catalog, but this will give you a good idea about how to start exploring. Have fun!
