14 Populating the Catalog Page

One of the features of the Aldine theme is a standalone catalog page. On this page, users can filter books by subject or license, and can sort books by Title, Subject, or Latest. The latest titles added to this catalog can also be displayed on the network homepage as a carousel.

Network managers can control which books they’d like to display in the catalog. To do so:

1. Go to Network Admin > Books to open a list of all books on the network

Access your catalog from the Network Admin dropdown menu


3. Check the In Catalog option next to the books you wish to display. Note that only books that are public can be selected for display.
