How to Search for New Materials

If you are not familiar with using the Winnipeg Public Library catalogue, or feel like you cannot find the materials you need, don't panic! Planning out the right search strategies, and taking advantage of filtering options can give you a much easier time narrowing down the types of books that are right for you.

WPL offers an easy-to-follow tour of the catalogue features seen below.

If the item you are looking for is not available in our collection, WPL has a Suggest a Feature'form that is sent to our collections librarians for requesting new materials.

If there is a more immediate need, then WPL also provides an Inter-Library Loan feature.  We will check libraries all across the country in order to acquire the material requested.
