MyMediaMall has changed its name

Posted on June 26th, 2019

MyMediaMall has a new name! It is now called Digital Library of Illinois.

If you are one of our many patrons who downloads ebooks and audiobooks from MyMediaMall through the Booth Library website, don’t worry. Your access to the collection will not be interrupted. The platform and how to use it is the same; only the name and URL have changed.  If you have MyMediaMall bookmarked, please update your links to: https://dlil.overdrive.com.

Patrons who use the OverDrive or Libby apps to access MyMediaMall will have their default library automatically updated to the Digital Library of Illinois.

For more information on this change, please contact the library Research Help desk at 581-6072 or click here.

Attack of the ’90s!

Posted on June 24th, 2019

Remember the ’90s?  If you don’t now, you soon will!  The 1990s arguably gave us some of the greatest films ever produced, and we’ve put together a handsome collection of them up here on the 4th floor, ready to be checked out.  20 years since it came to a close, the ’90s is a decade that continues to resonate and influence popular culture, and rightfully so.  Where would we be without Jurassic Park?  And perhaps more importantly, where would we be without Space Jam?  Certainly nowhere near as excited about this display.

Do we seem to be missing a classic ’90s gem from our collection?  Let us know via this convenient form, and we’ll do our best to abide.
