Our new look Library Catalogue is now available

Minor Glitches

There is a problem with the orange My Account button at the top of this website for logging into your Library account. The log in page opens however it will not link to your account after you click the Log In button.

Use the purple Library Catalogue button and when the new Library Catalogue opens click on either Log In or My Account in the top red banner area, which opens the log in window that will link to your Library account.

An easier way to find items in the Library

The home page features a rotating display of new books in Adult General Fiction, Adult Non Fiction, Teens, Children's (Junior) and Bestseller collections.


The Catalogue has a number of new features that make looking for items in the Library much easier including:

  • Google like searches that return meaningful results.

  • Facet limits where you can easily refine search results by placing ticks next to authors, age groups, formats, dates and more.

  • Search, preview and download eBooks from Novel (OverDrive) directly from the catalogue.

  • The Catalogue integrates with some online resources databases.
    You will soon be able to directly search MasterFILE Complete and Australia/New Zealand Reference Centre databases through the catalogue.

My Account facility is more user friendly where you can review your library account, place holds, renew items, create and manage lists of items for future reference.
