OPAC searching the library

Do you know what OPAC stands for?

Online Public Access Catalog…I admit before working in the library, I was not very familiar with the official term OPAC. Now I absolutely love teaching how to our OPAC to my students. 2nd-5th graders receive formal OPAC lessons in the library in order to better become independent at finding their own books.

I help students navigate through the LMC through OPAC Scavenger Hunts and an official OPAC License test. Students practice hunting our OPAC and then take a test where they find a book in our LMC by author, series, or subject and earn their official OPAC license.
