The Boca Raton Public Library recently launched a more user-friendly online catalog search layer on its website.
Joining other leading library systems across the nation, the Boca Raton Public Library implemented the interactive software called BiblioCore, which provides guests the opportunity to experience intuitive, plain-language searching that delivers precise results. Along with providing more accurate searches, the software will allow patrons to see all format options in a single record such as book, large print, audio, digital, CD and DVD.
BiblioCore enables individuals to also filter their search by format, age, popularity, availability, location, reading level, language and more.
“Library buildings have always been spaces where people connect with ideas and each other,” Boca Raton Public Library technology and digital services librarian Joleen Wielkie said in a statement. “We are so excited to bring that same sense of community engagement and collaboration online with our new catalog.”
With BiblioCore, guests can discover new reading and viewing recommendations on the catalog homepage, as well as create reading lists and virtual bookshelves.
Boca Raton Public Library cardholders can visit bocalibrary.org to search and set up a new account.
