Online Resources

Some Florida online resources are gathered together in one spot for you.

These include MyFlorida website, a large gathering of many things on Florida government in one website; Vital Statistics, birth and death certificates; and Florida Department of Education. These are just a few...there are more.

Take a look.

Online catalog

We've been working on installing a spell check function in our online catalog. We had problems but it looks like it is fixed and working correctly.

This spell check will give you a suggestion for a misspelling or a typo. One word that my fingers get mixed up on is Florida. I want to type it Floirda.

Now if I do type incorrectly in the online catalog, spell check will ask: Do you mean Florida? When I click on that, the program will bring up a list of items on Florida, spelled correctly. No more...not found, perhaps this list will help. and a dead end.

Give it a try.

Online catalog

We're installing a spell check function for the online catalog. We're having a bit of a won't see any details about the items from the hit list.

The vendor and our IT contractor are working on resolving the problem.

If you have questions about an item or need help in locating it, ask library staff.

Staff Development Day

All libraries were closed to the public on Monday, October 13. We had a staff development day system wide.

We gathered at Bradford Library so we could take advantage of their new facility. 26 staff members participated in sessions on online information, customer service, stress in the workplace and learning new technologies.
