How do I find an author's list of books available at OPL?

Thanks for asking! Our library catalog is the best place to find which books we own by a particular author. When you look at the catalog, you'll see a search bar at the top of the screen that usually says "Keyword" in a drop-down menu. You can either type the author's name right in to the keyword search or change the drop-down menu to "Author." Either search should return most or all of an author's books that we own. You can reorganize the search results to be alphabetical by title or chronological by publication date, or filter out specific kinds of materials like ebooks or books on CD. 

For example, here are lists of Robert Parker books from newest to oldest (happens to include the 'posthumous' books technically written by others) and a list of Maeve Binchy Large Print books in order by title. 

If you have difficulty navigating the search or finding a specific book you're looking for, please feel free to give us a call at 402-444-4800. Our staff are always happy to check what books are available in our collection. If there was a particular author you were looking to find, feel free to email back with the name! I can check that as well.
