Next time you go to search our library collections you may notice things look a bit different. Yesterday, we launched a New Library Catalog search system that will hopefully make searching much easier and expose new materials you may have missed before.
Not ready to make the switch? Don't worry, our previous library catalog is still available as the "Classic Catalog" - look for the link at the bottom of the screen in the new system. "My Account" is also unchanged and can be accessed from either version of the catalog - just first select the "Login" link in the new catalog and enter your library card and PIN number.
Give the new system a try and please let us know what you think!
Sometimes I find it difficult to find yearly car reviews in Consumer Reports in our Ebsco database.
After clicking on the April link I see Consumer Reports " Top Picks," "Best and Worst," "Profiles," "Ratings," "Used Cars," "Safety," "Used Car Reliability," and "Reliability" history of new and used cars. Next I click on "PDF Full Text" to see the complete magazine article.
Note: You will first need to enter your library card and password to access Ebsco database.
New York based Actor and old movie afficianado, Steve Hayes, has been hosting a video blog for the past year all about the great old movies you may have never seen.
His vlog, Tired Old Queen at the Movies, features one great movie a week. Steve is really knowledgeable about the movie industry and all the Hollywood dish from back in the day and he shares all of it with you in a conversational style. He's your friend who can tell you just which film to watch when you're in the mood for a film noir or a grand hollywood musical.
Recently, he shared one of Hitchcock's lesser known works, Stage Fright, starring Marlene Dietrich and Jane Wyman. Once you hear what Steve has to say about it, you'll be sure to want to come to the Library and pick up a copy from our DVD collection.
The Library has most of the over 55 movies he has profiled.
