Ebook question

Question:  Is there a way to search, or list, ebooks?

Response:  To obtain or search for a list of ebooks, type “electronic resource” (including quotes) in the keyword box or alternatively click on “free audiobooks and ebooks” from the library’s main page to be taken directly to the South Jersey Audiobook and eBook Download Center.

Procedure for renewing online

 I don't know if this is available, but book renewal online would be nice.  I say this because I am presently out of town and my book was due yesterday and I won't be home until tomorrow.

Library cardholders may renew their own materials online. All material may be renewed except for materials with reserves and materials on which you owe fines.
How to:
1. Click on My Account to login.
2. If not the default view click the "Items currently checked out" link to view the materials you have checked out.
3. Select the materials you want to renew by checking the boxes in the RENEW column and then click the Renew Selected button. If you want to renew everything, click the Renew ALL button.
4. If you cannot renew items, a message will appear on the screen. If you are successful, a new due date will appear in the "STATUS" column. Always check the STATUS column for information on the success or failure of your renewal.

January 30: Check out OneSearch - the new library catalog!

Your library is more than what you see on the shelves.

It includes 24/7 access to electronic databases in business, education, health, genealogy and more.  And now that access just got a whole lot easier.

The new Moorestown Library OneSearch gives you access to all of the materials in the library’s collection PLUS content from our research databases….all in one place.

What does this mean for you?

The catalog will look different and searches will retrieve more than just what's in our
library collection. For example, if you do a search for "ebola," you will get materials in our collection plus magazine and newspaper articles on the subject. You do have the ability  to limit your searches to library materials only if that’s what you need.

Stop at the Reference Desk to let us know what you think and get answers to your
questions about this new service.
