What’s Vega? It’s a new online library catalog that the Mid-Hudson Library System has invited PPLD patrons and staff to test. Vega offers more relevant search results and an intuitive design, with some new tools for personalization. We hope you will love using it! View the FAQs.

To help tweak this prototype, we’d love your input. Would you take a few minutes to:

Online Catalog: The Library’s Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) allows patrons to search for all materials available from the Poughkeepsie Public Library District and the collections of the entire Mid-Hudson Library System, including books, large print, magazines, video cassettes, DVDs, music CDs, CD-ROMs and more! Patrons can also view their library account, renew items, and place or cancel their material requests.

SEAL: Southeastern Access to Libraries is the gateway to search for books, magazines and other resources available in the academic, special, public, and school library community in southeastern New York – all from one search screen.

WorldCat: This worldwide union catalog was created and is maintained collectively by more than 9,000 member institutions. If the materials found here are not in our collection, please ask a Librarian to request them for you from another library.
