Put a Hold On It: Reserving the Latest DVDs
The New York Public Library has a vast collection of DVDs that everyone from movie buffs to families can enjoy. Even though the NYPL catalog has a new format—currently without the "Recently Ordered" section displayed, I would like to the share my first #libraryhack with you: how to find the most recently ordered DVDs in the catalog and reserve your copy.
Step 1. Choose the advanced search box and enter your search criteria.
If you are using the Basic Search function, your search will look like this:
Step 2. Sort Your Results
Once you are given a results screen, choose the option "Sort by" and Choose "Date." This will put the most recently ordered movies first in your results list.
Step 3. Browse and reserve
Once you find a movie that you would like to watch, simply click Place Hold, enter your login information, and choose the branch most convenient for you to pick up your items at. You will be notified when your movie has arrived.
