Imagine borrowing books or movies or audiobooks from across Ohio for pickup at your local library. Imagine you can do this from your home computer or at the library.
Well, it’s not a dream, it’s a reality!
Through Moving Ohio’s Resources Everywhere (MORE), you may request items that the Wilmington Public Library does not own. MORE can be accessed here:
How does MORE work?
Let’s say you search the local catalog for an item and find that this library doesn’t own a copy of the item you are looking for. Click “M.O.R.E.” under the catalog’s “Search” tab and you arrive at MORE’s “Zportal” search page, home to an ever increasing number of Ohio libraries — public, school, and otherwise.
Search all available libraries or tailor your search to specific ones. Once you find the item you want, click “Request it!”
At that point, the system will ask you to input your borrower barcode number, found on your library card, and what library your card is from.
Here’s the tricky part. MORE will ask for your barcode number, a password and your library name. If you never put anything in the password box, you won’t need a password. But if you do put in a password, you are responsible for remembering it. The library has no record of it.
Once logged onto MORE, continue with your request. You can revisit MORE to check on the status of your order. When it arrives, we contact you by mail or e-mail, depending on your preference indicated at the time you registered for a library card.MORE Information
