How to Browse HCPL's Most Recently Added eBooks

Did you know that we've added 692 titles to our Digital Media Catalog in the past 30 days?  If you are already familiar with our Digital Media Catalog, browsing for recently added titles is relatively painless.  What follows is a step-by-step tutorial on how to do so.

First, head to HCPL's website,

Of course, if you are using an iPad, you can bypass this step by using the Overdrive app.  

For non-iPad users, click on the icon in the middle of the page that reads "HCPL Digital Media Catalog".

On the left side of the page beneath the Quick Search heading, click on "Advanced search".

In the Advanced Search screen, click on the drop-down menu next to the "Date added to site" option.  Your options are within the last two weeks, 30 days, 90 days, 180 days, or year.  For this example, we'll use the "Within the last 30 days" option.

Click "Search"

And this yields 692 total titles.  If you would like to browse titles that currently have copies available to check out, click the box next to "Only show titles with copies available" and click submit.  You need not type anything in the search field.

While this yields a substantially smaller number, there are still 211 new titles to choose from - titles that you can check out from the comfort of your home, or a coffee shop, or on an American Airlines flight that you could not have 30 days ago.
