Library Technology Survey & chance to win Mini iPad!

The Quechee/Wilder Libraries would like to better understand how our patrons use public technology resources and services available.  These include public computers, wireless networks, online resources, and digital literacy training.  Understanding your needs helps us make informed decisions about allocation of technology resources to support your desired outcomes in education, employment, entrepreneurship, health & wellness, eCommerce, and so much more!  Please take a few minutes to complete this on-line survey. Hard copies are also available at the circulation desk, if you prefer. At the end of the (anonymous) survey you will have the option to enter in a raffle to win an iPad.

We are pleased to take part in this pilot survey with the VT Department of Libraries.  At the end of the survey you may choose to submit your email address for a drawing to win a mini-Ipad.  Patrons from all participating  libraries who complete the survey by 10/31/2014 will be eligible. leaderboard_1

VOKAL & What that means for Catalog Use

In April  the Quechee/Wilder Libraries become one of nearly 50 Vermont libraries in the VOKAL consortium, sharing a catalog and circulation system called Koha.

All libraries in our town of Hartford will now be on the same system and all residents can more readily access all the collections, use their patron cards at any Hartford Library and/or request that books be brought from one site to another. The easiest way to initiate these transfers as well as regular inter-library loan requests and reserves is to simply use the familiar online shopping method : a cart! Access your patron account, search for a title, click the “add to cart” link. When your cart is ready, click on the green cart button and then hit “send”. For details on this process, stop in for a new Digital Resources guide sheet or email us at info@quecheelibrary to have one sent.

An advantage of VOKAL is that patrons can see items from all the member libraries. Remember that the staff can still borrow for you from all Vermont libraries; continue to just ask for what you don’t see. Search QW Libraries first and always click on the title to see availability and locations. Remember too that titles come in various editions and there is no particular order. Scrolling to find the local copies will always speed things along. For full instructions on catalog and digital resources use, click here
