An AADL card makes a wonderful gift!

Gift Certificates for AADL non-resident cards may be purchased at service desks at all AADL locations. The certificates are available for 3 months ($37.50), 6 months ($75.00), 9 months ($112.50) or one year ($150.00). The cost is the same whether the gift is for an individual or an entire family living at the same address. For those people you know who do not live in the Library district but would really love to be able to check out books, DVDs, CDs, art prints, and all of the other wonderful things available at the Ann Arbor District Library, consider this great gift idea. The certificate may be redeemed at any AADL location by filling out a short application and showing photo I.D. and proof of address. Certificates are available all year long and make wonderful gifts for many occasions.

All locations of the Ann Arbor District Library will be closed on Wednesday, Nov. 11 for a staff training day.

The new aadl.org: week 2!

Thanks to all our patrons for such great feedback about the new catalog since its launch last week. We still have some things missing that we're working on, but a lot of changes have been made and fixes implemented based on your input, so please keep it coming. Here's what we're working on this week:

  • Personal Card Catalog will be back with all your saved cards intact
  • Adding sort by item type to the Checkout History screen
  • Adding reviews and summaries back onto item record pages
  • Fix for various Internet Explorer display issues including hidden copy lists
  • Better support for special characters in the search

...plus whatever you uncover. As a bonus, if you use Firefox or Internet Explorer 7 or 8, you might try out this new aadl search plugin, thanks to one of our patrons!

Thanks again for all your continued patience and feedback as we've made this significant transition. If you're looking for last week's catalog thread, you can find it under About Us :: Library News.

Welcome to a new aadl.org!

Today we're pleased to release a completely rebuilt catalog on an upgraded website. The new catalog offers significantly improved performance and usability as well as numerous small enhancements throughout the site. That said, there are sure to be glitches, temporarily missing features, or tweaks yet to come, so please take a look around and let us know what you find and what you think, either by commenting on this post, or by contacting us. Thanks for your patience, and thanks for using the library!

Update: some older web browsers may have trouble using the menu bar buttons. We're working on this; for now, you should be able to go straight to http://aadl.org/myaccount or http://aadl.org/catalog. Thanks for your patience!
