Using Your Account Online

The Library is using software called Evergreen that puts our catalogue on the Web and gives patrons online access to renew books or place holds. With a patron card you’ll be able to access your account and use online services like eLibraries Manitoba (audiobooks and ebooks) and EBSCOhost (online databases).

[evergreen logo] To search our catalogue or access your account please visit our Evergreen site. Use the Your Account link on that site to access your account (to change your password, contact info, etc.).

Please visit the Library to sign up for a new card if you don’t yet have one.

[elibraries logo] To download audiobooks or ebooks visit eLibraries Manitoba or install the Libby app from the App Store or Google Play. (For use with a Boissevain-Morton Library card number we are listed as “Boissevain & Morton Regional Library” in the Libby app.)

Ebsco logo To access our selection of online databases login to EBSCOhost. See our subscription list for a list of the available databases.

NNELS-logo Digital talking books for people with print disabilities are available from NNELS. If you have signed up for this service at the library, you can log in with your library card.

Clear as mud? It’s okay, we’re librarians and we like answering questions!

Interlibrary Loans

fILL-Logo If you’re interested in borrowing books from other Manitoba public libraries and would like to search for them yourself you may use the Manitoba Public Libraries ILL management system (named fILL) (formerly called MAPLIN).

fILL is linked with our Evergreen system so your login (barcode and password) is the same on fILL as it is for eLibraries Manitoba or your account on Evergreen. Any requests you make will be sent to us to review and forward to the other library. If we’re unable to fill the request for some reason we will try to notify you.

Accessible Materials

We offer a variety of materials in accessible formats.

Large Print Books

We currently hold over 3,100 large print books in our collection and regularly add new titles. You can search for large print books in our collection by going to our search page, clicking on the “Format” drop-down menu and selecting “Books (Large Print)”.

Libby

The eLibraries Manitoba digital collection includes more than 13,000 audiobooks and over 45,000 e-books readable in large or OpenDyslexic fonts through the Libby app. Visit eLibraries Manitoba site to explore this accessible digital collection.

Centre for Equitable Library Access (CELA)

The Centre for Equitable Library Access, CELA, is a national not-for-profit organization that provides accessible reading services to the approximately 3 million people across Canada with print disabilities. Through these services we can now provide audiobook, ebook and e-Braille downloads, and/or physical CDs to patrons who identify themselves as having a print disability. For more information please visit the CELA website.

National Network of Equitable Library Service (NNELS)

If you have a print disability, you qualify to register as a print-disabled library member: this allows you to access resources from NNELS. NNELS is a repository of content owned and sustained by Canadian public libraries, working with partners to make copies of books in accessible formats for readers in Canada who have print disabilities. For more information please visit the NNELS website.

Making Connections

As an integral part of our community since 1959, Boissevain & Morton Regional Library strives to connect our patrons with enjoyable reading, good information, interesting exhibits, and each other. We have a broad collection of fiction and non-fiction for all ages, as well as movies, reference material, and the Boissevain Community Archives. And, if you can’t find what you’re looking for within our walls we’re more than happy to request it from another library or help you find it on the Internet.
