Blog > Library Implements New Online Catalog

Posted April 25, 2022

This week the Matteson Area Public Library will be transitioning to a new patron access catalog called Aspen.  Aspen has all the features of the previous catalog — plus many more — to make it easier to search for materials and manage your account. Aspen includes all of the Matteson Area Public Library’s resources as well as materials from 99 other libraries in our system.

Once implemented, patrons will not only be able to search for the usual library materials but they will also be able to search and immediately checkout many of the library’s online resources such as eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, newspapers, and more without searching another website or app.

Find our video on how to locate our new catalog from our website here.
