The OPAC is an online database of all of the print resources held in the library. You can search the OPAC to locate books, journals ( print format), vertical and newspaper files in the library. It lists the location of the items, whether they are in the library or out on loan, and their call number. Search OPAC here.
The OPAC allows patrons to place holds, view reading history and much more.
Your My Library Account is required to place books on hold, view your borrowing history and view any book fines for over-due items via the OPAC. Log-in to your My Library Account here.
