Finding information on a book can be difficult. However, there are several websites that are very helpful. Whether you are trying to find a book in a series, an author, or a new read, these websites will help you find exactly what you are looking for.
The Online Catalog contains all of the books that Hamilton County Library has. After logging into your account, you can search for books that are available and even renew the books that you have checked out. The Online Catalog can also provide you with all of the information you need to know about a book: what books are in the same series, author information, suggested reads-based on author, series and book similarities. It even has excerpts for some of the books so you can decide if you are interested in the book before ever checking it out. Once you have found the book you need, seeing if the book is available, putting a book on hold, or making a list for future reference, is simple and easy.
