Deep Search feature & Notify Me tags are now available in MCLS’s Libby Collection

MCLS now offers a new feature in Libby that helps you find all the content you’re looking for, even if it’s not yet in our digital collection.
In Libby, there are two ways to discover titles that are not yet in our digital collection:

  1. If you search for a title, author, or series and it returns no results, Libby will automatically expand into a “deep search” to display relevant titles that are not yet in our collection.
  2. If you run a search that returns fewer than 100 results, you can tap the filter button ( Icon Description automatically generated with medium confidence) to manually enable “deep search.”
