Tech Savvy – The Online Library


Are you a busy parent with a to-do list that means little time for browsing the library? Are you a shift worker? Is there a book you’d like to put on hold, but can’t seem to find the time to get to the library and ask?  There are a few ways you can ‘visit’ us at the Gawler Public Library without ever setting foot into the library.  You can use your computer or laptop at home to login to our web catalogue to add, suspend or cancel holds, create lists, renew your loans and update your preferences or PIN if you need to. This means whenever you are free, be it 6am, lunchbreak or when the kids are in bed and the house is finally quiet, you can check your account and browse the catalogue. Go to: https://sapln.ent.sirsidynix.net.au/client/en_AU/gawler/?dt=list


There is also our library app BookMyne, which gives you, the library customer, the opportunity to access your account and add family member accounts so you can keep track of your library activities. Available on iTunes App Store and Google Play to download for free. Follow this link to learn more: http://www.sirsidynix.com/products/bookmyne

We also have e-books and e-audiobooks available through the catalogue or by using two apps available to download for free from iTunes App Store and Google Play, so you just may find something you can download and enjoy right away! For more information click through on the link below:

We have a wide range of magazines available here at the library and you can browse our online catalogue to find even more from other SA library services.  They will be delivered to your library of choice  and remember you can return them to any public library in South Australia when you’re done! So as part of your next road trip prep make sure you get online and reserve some reading material for your journey! If you’re not quite organised or you’re off interstate, you can use our online subscription service Zinio for Libraries. You’ll need to set up an account using your library card barcode, but it only takes a few moments then you’re ready to browse through many titles from here and overseas, to read on your device wherever you may be.  Access here: http://bit.ly/2mzIRQN

LyndaLibrary is one of the excellent subscription services arranged by Libraries SA for all of the public library users in South Australia.  It has a great range of over 3000 courses with hundreds of videos to assist your learning.  Latest commercial software, creative and business skills are all available through lynda.com, with courses that cover topics such as business management, leadership, marketing, multimedia, design, web development and more.
FAQ and how to login:  http://www.libraries.sa.gov.au/page.aspx?u=1602

So your little old library card can give you access to so much in our libraries throughout South Australia and wherever you are using any of our great online subscription services!
