Titlewave Tips

A few tips for using Titlewave:

1.        To find eBooks or other specific searches, I would use the advance search to pinpoint the items that you need.  For example, if you do find a book that interests you, click on the advance search and put in a Dewey range around that item.

2.       Create as many lists as you want.  Just click on the Want (This only means that you want them on a list.) and add them to a list or create a new list.

3.       Anyone else at your school can have an account and you can share lists between each other.

4.       Up at the top, there are many lists in the banner under Essentials and Literacy Trends (this has eBooks).  Our professional librarians have spent a great deal of time compiling these so you might want to look at them.

5.       If you do look at one of the lists, you can narrow your search by clicking on the Drill Down at the top of the list on the right hand side.

6.       Try to avoid using the back button and use the breadcrumbs.  Browsers can cause issues when you have inputted something previous on one page and you try to go back to the same page.

7.       We also offer a free collection analysis for schools, this is available on the Collection Management link on the right hand side of the website.  Your representative can guide you through this process if you would like to take advantage of this.  In addition, when searching for books, Titlewave will show you if you already have the book in your collection.
