KDLA Library Cards Are Coming!
We're going retro! We will soon be sending out library cards to all new library account applicants. If you already have an account, but would like to receive a card, please contact Deborah Hibbard, State Library Circulation & Marketing Librarian, firstname.lastname@example.org, 502-564-8378. Please note - receiving a card will entail getting a new library account number which may affect any holds and wish lists that you have in KLU/Libby.
Upcoming August Webinar - WorldCat Discovery
We will be holding a webinar in August (date to be determined) on the ins and outs of our WorldCat Discovery catalog. WorldCat Discovery is not your average library catalog! With WorldCat Discovery, you can search not only KDLA's collections, but the collections of thousands of libraries worldwide. WorldCat is the most comprehensive database of library bibliographic information in the world. So check our Training Events Calendar later this summer for registration information.
