It is very easy to request books, movies, music, and anything else you might need from the Merlin catalog online. First of all, you will need a library card from a Merlin participating library. Then from any location with Internet you can go to the catalog at http://merlin.nwls.lib.wi.us/ and begin to browse. You can browse by title, author, subject, or keyword. Once you find the item that you want, you will click on "request" and it will save your request to a basket until you are ready to send your final basket in with all of your requests. You will need to enter your barcode and choose the most convenient library to pick your items up. It is just like using a shopping basket at your favorite online store, but there is no cost. Once you have sent your request in, your job is done until you receive a call from your library letting you know that your items are in. Sometimes your items will come separately and you may need to make more than one trip to the library.
