How to search for items at your local library

You can limit public catalog searches to items that are available at your local CLEVNET library system only.

For this guide, we will be using Cleveland Public Library and its South Brooklyn branch as our examples. You can apply these instructions the same way to your local system and branch.

Enter your search term

Use the search options to limit results to your library system

Your specific library system will appear here

Click “Search”

The search results will include only items that your library system owns.

Searching for items at your specific pickup branch

You can further limit your searches to include only items that your library pickup branch owns.

Enter your search term, limit to your system, and click “Search”

This is the same process as above, so far

Your search results will appear.

Find the “Library” search limit and click “View All”

The “Library” search limit should be the first one you see on the search results

Add a check mark on your pickup library branch and click “Include”

We’re South Brooklyn branch for this example

The search results will include only items that your pickup library owns.
