The Library Adventures of Gnorm: The Library Catalog and E-Books

Gnorm, ever curious and wanting to learn, wonders what else our library has about gnomes. He realizes that he has two ways to search: meander around the whole collection until he finds what he’s looking for, or use some sort of catalog.  Gnorm, being effiecient minded, decides to search for the word gnome in the library’s online catalog to see what he can find.

Not only does he find something, Gnorm realizes that the library has electronic books that can be accessed either on or off-campus. He doesn’t even have to get out of his fuzzy teddy bear pajamas to borrow a library book. Now, as long has he has access to the internet, he can keep up his intellectual pursuits while he travels.
