Hello,

Thanks for asking. Unfortunately the library catalog  is not always the best resource for finding items by series order only. The catalog will automatically bring up what has been most recently added to the library system which may not be what you are looking for.

An excellent resource to use for finding books in a series by publication date is called Fantastic Fiction and can be found here. This website will allow a user to search by author, book series, titles. This allows the user to find the order of books in a series, what has been most recently published by certain authors and upcoming titles.

I hope this helps and if you have any other questions or concerns please do not hestiate to contact AskOPL.

Thank you.
