In the spring of 2010, the South Plainfield Public Library switched over to a new computer system, designed by Innovative Interfaces, Inc., to manage our online catalog, checkout & renewal, patron records and related functions.

With the Encore easy search box, you can search for library materials in ways that are intuitive, relevant, and familiar to today's internet users. With a click of your mouse, you can limit your search results by format (book, audiobook, DVD & VHS), publish date, or language. You can also use the Encore Advanced Search feature, explore related searches, refine your search by keyword 'tags', or view a list of popular choices linked to your search.You can even add your own keyword tags and ratings for library materials.

If you prefer, you can search the catalog using the Classic Search or Classic Advanced Search options. For more information about advanced searching, see Search Tips. In the Classic Catalog mode, you can also save searches for a favorite subject or author.

Both the Encore easy search box and the advanced search may be accessed directly from our home page.

Using the Online Catalog: Your Account

IMPORTANT: When using a public or shared computer to renew materials, be sure to log out of your account before leaving the computer.
