Searching:

You can either type in what you're looking for (title, author, subject, material type), or you can 'Explore with Filters'. ​​​​​​These filters range from books, audiobooks, available now, magazines, etc. If you click on one, it will refine your search and only bring up items of that filter (i.e. only the items on the app that are available now).
