On the Carousel

Are you a visual learner? Are you happier engaging with images than with text? If so, check out some of these graphic features in our library catalog Henry, which aim to present information to you in a different way.


On Henry’s home page you have probably noticed streams of book jackets and DVD covers. These are called “carousels”, and they offer an easy way for you to sit back and browse highlighted titles. Try it! There are two tabs that are passed through in rotation, or you can click on one in particular:

  • New Books: presents the very newest materials added to the catalog (they may not even be on the shelf yet!)
  • Special Display:  presents some of the materials currently on display in the lobby as part of the library’s monthly exhibits.

Flow Display

If you like the carousels, you’ll love the flow display option as a way to view your search results. By default in Henry, results appear in a vertical list, but if you change the “View As” setting, on the upper right of the results page, to “Flow”, you can view your results as a carousel. Here you can scroll through cover images of your results and click on any to bring up brief details about the title.

Virtual Shelf

Here is one last cool graphic feature. Once you find a book of interest, you can “virtually” browse the shelf around it. To do this, from the details page for an item, click the “Browse Virtual Shelf” button beneath the title header.

This will bring up a popup window of the virtual shelf, showing an image of your book and then the books that are before and after it in call number order. This is a great way to help you find resources on similar topics, which are typically grouped together by the call numbers.
