Encore Catalog Upgrades

The Lakeland Library Cooperative’s Encore catalog has recently been upgraded! Here are some of the new features:

  • The My Cart feature now allows you to add items to your cart, then request them for hold all at once!


  • A new Advanced Search function allows searching by any combination of title, author, etc.
    Tip: Use the Collection field to limit your search to “Kent District Lib. (all branches)” — especially handy for finding audiovisual items that can be requested for holds!

  • The catalog now displays a history of your recent searches and titles viewed at the bottom of each screen, so you can easily go back to things you’ve looked at earlier. (This history is cleared when you log out of your account or when your session times out.)


Try out the new features and let us know what you think!
