How to Use Our Catalog


Santa Barbara Public Library has a new catalog called Aspen Discovery. Our new catalog makes it even easier to borrow materials from the library, whether you are using a desktop computer or a mobile device. Aspen arranges materials in large buttons horizontally at the top of screens, in English and Spanish, making it easier to browse categories like newly purchased items, graphic novels, audiobooks, and more. Aspen also offers a user-friendly interface with smart search text that suggests search terms and titles as you type, making it easier and faster to search the catalog.
