Ordering Items Online
Use this guide to order items online.
The on-line catalog lets you easily search for and request the book, movie, audio book, or magazine that you want at NRLD and at other libraries in the Illinois Heartland Library System. Here is a video that explains how to use the catalog.
To find the catalog, you can go to NRLD’s website for an easy to use link. Clink on "Resources" or the link on the home page for the SHARE catalog. The rest of these directions are how to proceed from NRLD’s site’s link. You can also type in http://nwmp.illshareit.com to your address line on your web browser.
Clicking on the SHARE link will open the quick search page. If you click on "SEARCH" in the blue bar you will have a choice of how to search so that your results are more accurate. “Advanced” will let you search for more than one criteria, such as, both author and title.
"Limit by" is also a key feature of this search screen as it lets you choose the type of material you are searching for or to limit it to just NRLD's collection (choose "My Library"). If you want to search for a movie or music CD quickly, choose "Music CD" in the "Limit by" drop-down list.
The "More Search Options" link has some way cool additional ways to limit your search such as by more than one local library; by whether or not it is an accelerated reader book; by target audience (age) and more.
No matter how you do your search, he search results screen gives you options to further limit your search on the left side, a brief description of the items in the center, and buttons to check for availability, to learn more about the book, or to request it.
The next screen will ask for your bar code number from the back of your plastic NRLD library card and for your pin number which is the last four digits of your home phone in most cases. Type in the bar code without any spaces between the numbers.
Choose the location you wish to have the book delivered to and click on "Submit". You can choose any automated library in Illinois Heartland Library System to pick up your book, i.e. if you pass the library in Villa Grove, more often than our library, you may choose Camargo Township District Library.
The following screen will let you know you have successfully placed your request. You can then return to searching to find another item.
This same process works for searching for a movie, music CD or audio book. When the item arrives at NRLD we will call or e-mail you so you can come get it in a timely fashion. We are glad to bring these items to Murdock for pick-up.
