New Materials in OWLSnet

Your local library is purchasing new materials for you all the time. If your library is a member of OWLSnet, you have the added benefit of being able to get books from a 10-county area of northeast Wisconsin. That's over 50 libraries willing to share their materials with you. What a great deal!

Because OWLSnet's online catalog (NEWCat) contains so many records for all of these libraries, it can be rather difficult to find what's new. We've tried to make it easier for you by creating a new materials database that will let you peruse lists of new stuff in the comfort of your own home. Try some of the links below - they list a variety of new materials added to our collections over the last 15 days.

When you click on the title of an item in any of these lists, you will be taken into NEWCat, our online catalog. From there, you will be able to check the availability of the item, and if you like, you can even place a hold!

How to Place a Hold
(Once you have clicked on a title in the new materials list and are in NEWCat.)

  1. Click on the Hold Title button. It can be found in the blue border on the left side of the screen. A new window will pop open.
  2. Type your library card number (with no spaces) and the first 4 letters of your last name in the appropriate fields.
  3. Click on Validate Patron Privileges.
  4. Click on Commit Hold after confirming that your pickup location is correct.
  5. Use the back button of your browser to return to the new materials list you were previously viewing.

We hope you enjoy this service and find it helpful.
