Found a book on Amazon and want to check if the Library has a copy before you buy?


Pile of books

If you are looking at a book on Amazon, or any other online bookstore, you can now check whether the Library has a copy of it at the click of a button. There’s no need to make a note of the details and then use Library Search afterwards.

All you need to do is follow the link below and drag the “Check Library” button to your browser’s bookmarks bar. Then when you are on a web page that contains details of a book (or even a whole list of them!) just click on the button and it will tell you if we have a copy straight away. It will even check all the editions of the title, not just the edition you’re looking at.

Get the Check Library bookmarklet here

If you need more information about how to create the bookmarklet, you can view a short 1 minute video.
