The Jackson District Library has a Flickr website. Flickr is a picture sharing website. We have put some pictures of our buildings, (right now it is mainly the Carnegie Building, but we will be adding more in the future), and our programs.
To look at the pictures go to http://flickr.com and in the search bar type jacksondistrictlibrary.
Check back often we will be adding pictures.
When you locate material in the JDL online catalog. You can now e-mail that information to yourself or a friend. Here’s how:
Search for the material you want. See: Using the New JDL WebPages Part I-Searching the Catalog
Below the copy/holding information list (the list of where the materials are located) you will find the e-mail form:
Just fill in the email address and click Send
There has been some confusion about logging into the JDL Website.
You do not need to log-in to the website to search the catalog, use the online resources or databases, or search the events.
If you are searching the catalog and want to place a request or see what you have out you will need your library card number and PIN.
Loging into the website is different. If you create a seperate website account you can then make or add comments about the blogs, the events and even post to forums. In order to log in to the website you must create a new account.
We still have all of the online resources and databases that many of you used before, but we hope that they are easier to find.
You can find many of the online databases, like Reference USA, Novelist, and Bookletters, by clicking the Research/homework link on left side of the page.
You can then search the databases by name (alphabetical order) or by subject
