By Thais Rousseau
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
Have you ever wanted to keep track of what books in a series you have read, or still want to read, or wish you had a list of all of the books you used as resources, for a particular report or paper?
You can create lists right in your record at the Jackson District Library online catalog.
First find the books you want in the online catalog (see Using the New JDL Webpages Part I searching the catalog.)
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.
Searching for Events.
Jackson District Library has lots of things happening year round and every day. With our new webpage calendar system you have several ways to search for the event you want.
The easiest way is to click on "events" at the top of the page
This brings up the calendar that you can browse by date to see what is happening at which branch on any particular day.
