The JET Library contains over 100,000 items, this includes not only books but videos/DVD's, instructional materials, and more.
Finding Print Books in the Catalog:
From the Library homepage, simply type your title or keyword(s) into the box. Select "Library Catalog" from the drop-down menu then click the magnifying glass.
Note: For ebooks, it is best to select "Everything" from the drop-down as some ebooks are in electronic collections (Articles & more) and others are in the Library Catalog.
From your result list, find the book that you are looking for. Click on the Title - or Availability link of the book to see the full record. This will show you if the book is available, what collection it is in (circulating, reference, etc.) and the Call Number
Finding Books within the Library:
The search option you use will depend on what you already know:
JETfind's "Library Catalog" allows you to search for items that have been entered into the catalog by7, 30, or 90 days. Note: not all search terms will have all 3 date options in the New Items filter.
On any search results page, scroll towards the bottom of the filters which are located on the left. Expand the New Items filter, and select your date range.
If you wish to set up an RSS feed for the search, sign in to your account, save the search, then click on the RSS icon. At this time, RSS feed notifications work for the Library Catalog but not for the other JETfind search options.
Instead of texting, the new JETfind uses QR codes and permalinks.
Snapping a pic of the QR codes will open the item to your phone's web browser. If you are browsing the catalog from home, loading the book's location into your phone makes it very easy to retrieve it once you are in the library. Additionally - whether you're in the library or not - QR-ingi 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!
Just open your smartphone's camera, hover over the QR code and the rest will happen automatically.
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.
*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.
