Media Materials Library: New and Improved Online Catalog
Kelly Bryant, Library Materials Specialist
When you go to the Southern Oregon ESD’s web site (http://www.soesd.k12.or.us/) and click on “Media Booking and Online Catalog” under “SOESD Highlights” you will see a new screen. Medianet, our new software for the online catalog and web booking, is up and ready for you to use it!
Medianet is a very user-friendly, intuitive program that allows users to search for materials, book materials and extend materials already booked. To get started you don’t need to know a password—just your school’s phone number. If you were using our old system, then you are in the new system. If you have never used the online booking system, just give us a call and we will get you started. Please call our booking desk from 7:30-4:30 M-F at 776-8560 or 1-800-460-6454.
There are some great features that users will find when using Medianet. Forgot your password? Just click on the “forgot your password” link and you will get your password emailed to you. Need to ask us a question? Click on “Submit a Query” and we will help you out. Want to search for materials produced in a certain year and by a certain media type? You can do that. Do you want to make your own ‘mini’ catalog and print it out? Medianet will do that for you, too.
The staff of the Media Materials Library is ready, able and willing to help you navigate through the system. Give us a call and we will help you with your questions or concerns. We really feel that our users are going to be greatly pleased with all the new and improved features available with Medianet.
To help our users out there, we will be offering classes on using the new system. Those classes will be offered throughout the year. For more information on those classes, go to our Workshops and Professional Development page.
