Finding Books within the Library:
The search option you use will depend on what you already know:
Molloy's Catalog allows you to search for books that have been entered into the catalog between one and four weeks. At the bottom of any search results page, you have the option to view new books from the last 30 days, or just go here.
Text info from any book right to your cell phone from Molloy's catalog.
Why in the world would you want to do this?
Texting call numbers to your cell phone can be a convenient way to research for a number of reasons. If you are browsing the catalog from home, loading the book's location into your phone makes it very easy to retreive it once you are in the library. Additionally - and whether you're in the library or not - texting the information also means you won't have to print each record out or write down the precise call number(s). Lastly, it's a 'greener' way to go!
Once you are at the title level of any journal of book, you'll see a number of export options available, including Text. Simply enter your phone number, carrier and select send text. That's it!
Research Loan Program (RLP)*: RLP allows the student to borrow books from participating local institutions. View a list of Long Island Libraries participating in the RLP program. Ask a librarian for details if you are considering this service.
This program is currently suspended due to COVID19. Academic libraries are limiting access to their buildings to ensure the safety of their campus populations. Some academics are allowing curbside pickup; contact the individual institution for details.
*For both ILL and RLP, a librarian should be consulted prior to determine if attaining the material from another institution is the only option. Valid I.D. card required for both.
