Having Trouble Finding That Great Book?

No worries as new library system will be more search friendly.

A new catalog system, which is expected to be installed at the Pauline Haass Public Library by the end of November, will make it easier for Sussex readers to find great reads and information. 

The system, which is scheduled to be up and running on Nov. 28, will consist of a new interface that will include user-friendly features. 

"For users, I think it's going to be incredible," said Becky Murray, the head of adult services for the Pauline Haass Public Library. 

Library staff says the system will make it easier to log in, search for books and view the history of materials checked out of the library. 

"We have a lot of people wanting to remember what they have checked out," Murray said. "So this system will allow them to do that." 

The system will also have a email notification feature allowing patrons to be alerted through their smart phones and home computers. 

"We are really excited about it and we think its going to be really great for our (patrons)," Murray said. 

System installation will occur from Nov. 20 to Nov. 27. During this time, no materials will be due and some of the library's services will be limited.

Good because the current system sucks. It sucked when it was implemented. It looks like, and functions like, something designed by a 1st year web design student. I offered to help them test it and offered up countless suggestions when they first deployed the current system but never got any response. Any new system will be better than what's there now. Any idea if they're looking for feedback and beta testers? They didn't last time so I doubt they care enough this time but thought I'd ask...

With your attitude Mike I doubt they'd be interested in you helping them out.
