Featured Lists staff profile

Featured profile

Groups of staff who focus on particular areas of interest have profiles in the catalog just like you. When you look at our online lists you can see what profile created them. We use the HCL_featured profile to create short-term and high-interest lists such as “Streaming Hallmark watch-alikes,”  “Latino/x/e point of view,” and “Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and Family Caregivers Month.”

Streaming videos from Overdrive

Overdrive videos

Staff have added thousands of streaming videos to our catalog that you can search for by artist, subject and more. Search for “streaming video” with other key words, or just use “streaming video” to see them all and use the filters on the left to narrow things down to your interests. Popular picks include feature films, the Great Courses lectures, exercise videos, and children's titles.  


Books and reading events online
