How does Find in Library link work after integration? 


After Find in Library is integrated, visitors from USA and Canada can access their home library catalog search directly from your website. When they click Find in Library, Link2Library will automatically detect nearby libraries. A Select Home Library page, as shown in the following image, will ask them to confirm or select their home library. Once confirmed, a catalog search for the selected library will be performed. 


It should be noted that this page only shows up for first time users. They won't be asked to confirm library again unless they clear the cookies on their computers. If they choose the wrong library, they can either Reset Home Library or clear cookies to select their home library again.
