New Movies in the Collection

An interesting request from a Library user recently:

For those of you interested in new movies, there's not currently a feature to search new movies in our catalog, but we'll keep it in mind for future upgrades.

There is a fairly easy workaround, though: Using the "Advanced Search" feature in the catalog, you can search for an asterisk (*) in the films/videos format, and it will bring back almost all of the titles in our video collection. It will look like this:

Newest material tends to show up first in the search results, but if you wish, you can also limit your search by year using the left-hand menu:

Of course, deciding what to watch this weekend is totally up to you!
