desales library catalog available online
families now have access to the desales school library online, through ipac - internet public access catalog. thanks to a grant from a generous supporter, our library's card catalog was computerized in 2008, and all lending materials are now checked in and out using a bar code scanner.
this online catalog allows users to search our library’s holdings in a variety of ways:
allows you to search using keyword, subject, title, author and several additional options including “sounds like.”this is a phonetic search tool which is helpful with hard to spell search terms and for children that are learning to spell.
easy search allows you to explore the library using the methods similar to popular search engines.
advanced search options are also available.
once a desired item is located, details regarding the book, including its availability in the library, can be displayed.
students can use the web-based catalog to conduct research at home and create a “bookbag”of desired items. the bookbag’s contents can be printed and brought to the library to help locate items much more quickly. parents can also search the catalog with their children at home, to help select materials to borrow on library day. click here to access the online card catalog.
