New Catalog Interface

Live July 21, a new way to search!

Our new catalog interface, called Aspen Discovery, provides a one-stop shop for finding Norwich Public Library materials.

Aspen shows you what’s new and brings together titles that have different editions and formats. The Browse page, above, provides easy access to categories of items, such as “New Fiction,” “Staff Picks,” and “New York Times Nonfiction Bestsellers.”

Like the old catalog, you can log in to your account place items on hold, but with Aspen you can also get personalized recommendations and edit your account preferences.

See the sample images on this page or view this more detailed guide.

Aspen search results. At the top of the page, you see your results by format. The list brings different formats together, showing you what NPL has but also giving you the option to see what OneCard libraries have and displaying what’s available now. It has a prominent “Place Hold” button and allows you to refine your search results using the menu on the left.
