InfoSoup Help

Using the New InfoSoup

Your Library Card Number and PIN will remain the same and all your My Account features such as checkouts, holds, lists, fines, will be exactly the same. In fact, the "New" InfoSoup is really the same catalog with a new look and feel, additional content, and some great new features. If you have questions, please talk to your local library staff.

Below is a list of some of the new features. On the sidebar are some introductory videos and help documents.

What's New!

  • Improved search results
  • Easier to limit your results to a specific format and/or location
  • Checkout and manage your OverDrive titles right in InfoSoup
  • Find magazine and newspaper articles in addition to regular InfoSoup content

What's NOT (really) New!

Many of the most popular features of InfoSoup may look a little different, but will work just about the same as before.

  • Use your same library card number and PIN to login
  • Easy to place, view, and manage your holds
  • Renew online
  • Pay your fines online
  • Your Reading History (if you opted in) and any My Lists you created will still be available

What's missing

There are a few features that are not available.

  • Reviews and Rating from InfoSoup users no longer display. For most titles, however, reviews and ratings from Goodreads will appear near the bottom of each full record display.
  • Preferred Searches (Saved Searches) are not currently working in the New InfoSoup. If you use this feature, you can, for now, access your saved searches by logging into the Classic My Account.
