On Wednesday, December 6, the Mid-Hudson Library System will be launching a brand new catalog, Discover! Below are just a few of the new features, which will be available:
A modern and graphic interface
Discover has a clean, simple appearance with more intuitively organized features. It is more visual than the old catalog, with larger cover images, a fully customized homepage, and the ability to choose grid or list view for search results.
Smart results grouping
All formats of a title are shown in one place, including books, e-books/audiobooks, books on cd, and large print!
Staff lists and showcases are featured throughout the site to highlight new items, local collections, and expert recommendations.
Better lists, saved searches, and reading history
Bookmark lists are much easier to create and manage, searches can be saved and those saved searches can be easily updated and shared.
Revamped profile, giving users more control
Use a nickname, choose your home library, preferred pickup location, and preferred notification contact method. You can also edit your email address, phone number, and passcode.
Your physical and digital items together
See both your physical items from the Library and digital content from Libby and Hoopla together under both Checkouts and Holds. Easily search and borrow digital content directly from the catalog.
Results customized to your home library
When you’re logged in, the status and call number for your home library will display first. Libraries with available copies are also grouped together before libraries with checked-out copies.
