Geauga County Public Library Introduces New Website

Geauga County Public Library is introducing its new website at GeaugaLibrary.net. The site features a rotating showcase of library images, links to news stories and press releases of library news.

Patrons are now able to search the catalog directly from any page to find materials and programs easily and quickly. The site navigation remains similar to the previous site with the following exceptions:

1. Events Calendar – This new page is still under construction, but in late summer 2013, will feature an interactive, searchable calendar of upcoming events and programs.

2. DVDs Set Free – No longer nested inside another tab, this popular page is now accessible directly from the top navigation and is visible from any page.

3. Digital media – Find eBooks, audio books and eMagazines via Overdrive and Zinio on these pages.

4. Genealogy – Discover genealogical tools in this tab and learn what the Anderson Allyn room has to offer.

5. Children / Teens / Adults – These tabs now appear on the top navigation to allow users to quickly browse relevant programs, materials and selected research databases.

6. News stories and press releases – Find out what’s happening at the library in our collection of searchable articles and links to press releases.

7. New Arrivals – Be among the first people to see what popular books are arriving, right from the home page.

All other navigation tabs are similar to what users are accustomed to seeing. External services including MORE, Library Elf, Overdrive, Zinio and Know It Now are accessible via the library home page as they always have been.

GCPL is rolling out the new website in conjunction with the launch of the new Encore online catalog that offers intuitive searching of the library’s collection, text messaging of holds availability, book covers and improved filtering of search results.

“We are proud to offer patrons an enhanced, updated online catalog and website,” says Director Deborah F. O’Connor. “Navigation and browsing are intuitive and enjoyable. It is especially fitting that we can offer these expanded resources during our 50th anniversary year.”
