Searching the Catalog

Welcome to the new glenviewpl.org! The catalog’s smart searching function makes it easier for you to find what you’re looking for while discovering new materials. Here’s how to get started: 

Search the Catalog 

  • Type your search terms in the box on the top right-hand corner of our site and click the magnifying glass. The box defaults to a keyword search which will provide excellent results for most searches. Try it out by searching "new fiction books". 
  • Narrow your search by using the filter toolbar on the lefthand side of the page. Filter options include "audience", "topic", and even "rating". 
  • Once you've narrowed your list, you can click buttons to place a hold or add the item to your shelves.
