Learning Our Online System, Mini-lesson #1: What’s new?

This is the first in a series of tips on using our online catalog and your online account with Griffin Free. Today we will explore how to find out what books, DVDs, and other items are the newest to arrive at the library – all from the comfort of your home!

If you have not yet set up your online account access, please come in or call to do so. We need to make sure your account is up to date and setup a password before you are able to access your account. No setup is necessary for using our catalog however.

To get to the catalog, click the link on the right side of this page. In order to find what’s new, you will need to click on “advanced search”, just beneath the main search bar.

Once you are in advanced search, scroll to the bottom of the screen. In the “Sort By” bar, select “Acquisition date: newest to oldest”. Then, if you are looking for:

  • DVDs, select “DVDs” from the item type picture menu
  • adult fiction books, select “fiction” from the shelving location menu
  • audiobooks, select “Audiobooks on CD” from the item type picture menu

You can also select other options from the item type or shelving locations menu to narrow down your search. One you have made your selection, hit the search button at the bottom of the screen.

The results that appear will be the newest items acquired by Griffin Free that fall into the category you chose! You can see the freshest, brand-spankin’est, and most cutting-edge items we have to offer. And if there’s one you want, you can even put a hold on it to make sure that you get it next! But that’s a whole other mini-lesson.
