Add Books to Your Network Catalog

The Aldine theme features a standalone catalog page, which allows you to display an (optional) catalog of public books on your network that you would like to showcase.

Visitors to your network catalog can search books by title, author, or keyword, filtering the results by subject, license, date last updated, publisher, or inclusion of H5P activities. The resulting list of books can be sorted by title (A-Z) or by most recently updated.
