NLS Catalog boasts a new, clean design and advanced search functionality, direct links to BARD from catalog listings for quick downloads, and for the first time, patrons can directly request books to add to our collection!

Our Online Catalog
Patrons can also search our library’s Online Catalog by author, title and subject. Patrons can search by author, title and subject and place holds on items. When you put a book on hold through the online catalog, that book will go on your request list and will be downloaded to the next cartridge you send back, or if it is a Braille or large print book, it will be sent out to you when it is available. To place a hold on a book, search for the book you are interested in. Once you have found what you are looking for, there will be an icon that is labeled “Hold.” The icon looks like a piece of paper with a green arrow circling around it. Click that icon to place the hold. If you are not signed in, it will prompt you to sign in. Once you are signed in, just click the “hold” button one more time. The book is now on hold for you!
