One commonly requested item at the library is a test-prep book for some type of standardized test, such as SAT, ACT, ASVAB, etc.  Because test-prep books are so popular, it is often difficult to find one readily available and patrons often have to wait days or weeks for a hold to come in or settle for an older version that may not meet their needs quite as well.   Fortunately, there is another option: Learning Express Library, available through DISCUS.  While I have talked about DISCUS several times in this column, today I want to discuss a new service made available through Learning Express Library.  Learning Express Library has had online copies of test prep books for several years.  Recently, however, they began offering cataloging records so that libraries could “add” these books to their catalog, or more correctly, link to them from their catalog.  SC LENDS recently made the decision to do just that.  Now the entire catalog of Learning Express Library test prep books are accessible through the SC LENDS catalog.  As you are searching for physical copies of these books, books offered through Learning Express Library will appear in the list of search results.  To find the link, simply click on the title you are interested in and a link will appear in the catalog record.  To more easily find the Learning Express Library titles, change the “format” box to “electronic resources” to limit the search to only the titles available online.  You will still need to create an account to use these resources just as you would when going directly to Learning Express Library.  However, because Learning Express Library is available through DISCUS, accounts are free. 

Friends of the Library Annual Meeting:  The annual meeting of the FOL will be February 15 at 3:00 at Grace Methodist.  Students from local schools will be performing songs of America and Deane Brown will give a 20 minute talk on the Star-Spangled Banner.  The general public is invited and anyone can join or renew their membership at that time.
