The Chicago Public Library is launching redesigned online services, including a new website and improved library catalog.

The website was funded by a $1 million grant from the Chicago Public Library Foundation.

The software company BiblioCommons developed the services that will be rolling out during the next three years. The services integrate the library catalog and make accessible the library's diverse range of collections, events and services.

Users will be able to create a user name, keep a history of what they have looked at and create a wish list of what they want to borrow in the future. They can also rate titles and write and read reviews of books, movies and music.

Website services including book lists, upcoming events and blog posts by librarians.
