If you didn’t already know, the library has other information resources besides books – and we want to tell you about them! The next time you search the online catalog, click on the Other Resources button next to a book you’re in interested in. A new window will open with a list of these other resources. You might see a link to Content Cafe where you can read reviews about the book, or you might see a link to Biography Resource Center where you can view biographical information about the author. Links to magazine articles, encyclopedias and other library catalogs are included too. Did your catalog search result in no hits? Click the Other Resources button at the top of the screen and you can try your search at any of the resources displayed in the window.
All resources are available to anyone from inside the library. From home, only Content Cafe and other library catalogs are available to anyone, but all resources are available to Wheaton Public Library cardholders where you will be asked to log in using your library barcode number and PIN. This is the same barcode number and PIN used to view your library account and to checkout materials at the self-checkout stations.
P.S. If you miss the Reviews & More button, click the Other Resources button then click Content Cafe. We didn’t get rid of the reviews – we just moved them.
