Recently Added Titles now available for OPAC users

Greetings from the LibraryWorld news desk!

This week, we wanted to draw your attention to a great feature that was included in the release of LibraryWorld's new look: viewing the 5 most recently added titles. This view is available both from your main login page and in the OPAC user interface. The feature is a default setting for all new libraries and will automatically display on your personal login page, but if you have been with us for a while you will need to activate it for OPAC users. Once activated, the 5 most recent titles will display for your patrons to browse. There is a 'more' link available to bring up additional titles.

The feature can be turned for your OPAC users through the 'Settings' page. From your main login screen, navigate to the settings page from the links on the left side of the page. Once in settings, click 'OPAC' to go to OPAC settings. Select 'Y' from the drop down menu next to "OPAC Show Recent Titles" to turn this feature on for your patrons. While you are there, you should also activate the Google Book Preview feature. See our post on the Google Book Preview feature by clicking here. To save the chances, click the 'submit' button. See the screen show below for visual reference.

This is what your patrons will see when they navigate to the OPAC page.
