Welcome to Your New & Improved Online Catalogue Check out some of the key features below and start exploring your catalogue today!

Smarter searching

Search just like the rest of the internet as the catalogue now uses natural language detection to ensure searches with keywords like “new music” or “kids movies”, are easily found. Filters help you narrow in on exactly the items you want from the library.

Better browsing

Easily browse new titles, award winners, and lists created by library staff and other readers. Ratings, comments, and tags help you evaluate and choose the perfect book, DVD, or CD from the library’s collection.

Questions?

We are here to help! If you have questions regarding your new catalogue, feel free to review our easy-to-use online tutorial and FAQs. Staff are also available to help, contact us via text, phone or email, or during our operating hours, use the online chat option at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.

Note: Digital checkouts (Overdrive and Hoopla) will show in your account as of mid to late January once the digital content has been fully integrated into the Bibliocommons catalogue. We apologize for the inconvenience; in the meantime you can keep track by logging into your Overdrive or Hoopla accounts.

Also, when your borrowing history has more than 100 items, sorting is removed. Since BiblioCommons doesn’t store the information, the information needs to be read from the ILS, sorted quickly and displayed. If your borrowing history contained thousands of titles, the page load time would be unacceptably slow.
