Catalogs

We used to call it the card catalog, and even though it's not on cards, it still works the same way. You can look up specific titles, or browse. To find books and other library materials at our library, click on Bibliocommons. This will show you everything at our Library, as well as the rest of the members of our consortium, CCS. If you don't find what you're looking for there, you can expand out to First Search to look in Illinois, or to WorldCat to look at the resources of libraries all over the world.

Bibliocommons

Bibliocommons is the catalog for our Library where you can check to see if we own something and if it is currently available. If it's not, you can place a hold on it and pick it up at the Library when it's ready. It is also the catalog for our computer consortium, including 23 other suburban libraries.
