FOR TEACHERS

Limitless Libraries Tutorials

 

READING HISTORY: Print File. Created by G. Kirchmyer. Note: This instructional directive will help you to change settings in Limitless Libraries so you will be able to see your own reading history, enabling you to see titles you read in the past in case you need to check them out again. Because of privacy laws YOU must change this setting in order for the information to be accessible (otherwise, even librarians won't be able to pull it up).

RECENTLY ADDED RESOURCES: Print File. Created by NPL. Learn how to use some of the catalog's newest functions, like freezing holds (how to set the hold for a certain date) and others.
