Have you discovered all of the cool things you can do in the library’s new catalogue? Your librarians have been exploring how we can use lists to help us share our recommendations with you. For example, our Caledon Staff Shelf Indulgence list lets you know what Caledon PL staff members have been reading and watching each month: https://caledon.bibliocommons.com/list/share/2014879329/2081381639
Here’s why we like making lists from right inside the library catalogue:
- We can collect our faves all in one place, which makes it really easy to share links to our lists on places like our Reasons 2 Read Facebook group
- There’s room to add annotations and talk about why we decided to include a book on our list (and hopefully convince you that you’ll love it too!)
- If you’re interested in an item on one of our lists, you can place a hold with a single click and we’ll have it delivered to the branch of your choice
The best part of all? You don’t have to be a librarian to make a list! You can make your own lists, and keep them for yourself or share them with other readers who might enjoy your recommendations. To learn more about making lists, visit https://help.bibliocommons.com/030lists/
