This is our new online catalogue, which launched in April 2015. For the first time, you can use one catalogue to browse all our library collections, including books and resources in  Braille and Giant print, music resources, and Talking Books. New features include the ability to add books to your wish list and see what print books you have on loan. We’ve also listened to your requests for discoverability tools, such as the ability to browse by category or explore recommended titles, which are now available to you. We’ll add more features as we develop the new website, and we hope it’ll soon become a one-stop shop for all your library needs.

Work in progress

The new catalogue is still work in progress, with many more changes to come, but we wanted to launch the new website sooner rather than later to limit disruption to our customers. During development and before launching the new catalogue, we used input and feedback from our customers, staff and key professionals to make it as accessible and easy to use as possible, and we made some changes based on this feedback before we launched.

Need help using the new catalogue?

If you’re using the new catalogue for the first time, you’ll need to find out your password. Just call our Helpline on 0303 123 9999 – they’ll also be able to help you if you’re unsure of your customer number. If you know your customer number, you can visit the log in page, enter your customer number and select the option “receive your password by email”. If you need help using the catalogue, or would prefer to talk to someone, just call our Helpline on 0303 123 9999. Help pages are available on the catalogue website, and we’re currently developing a range of user guides to help you, whether you’re using the website with or without access technology.

Get involved

Since launching, we’ve had some very positive feedback, and all comments and ideas for future development are gratefully received as we continue to develop the site to make sure it’s the best possible product for the people using it.
