The new and improved AEA Media Catalog is ready and waiting for you! The online reservation system allows you to check out instructional resources located at Prairie Lakes AEA in Pocahontas, as well as from the Sioux City and Sioux Center locations of Northwest AEA, in a single search.

The new patron catalog is called SNAP, and it has an updated, modern look. Similar to other Iowa AEA Online databases used by teachers, SNAP allows users to easily filter or narrow searches to find specific instructional resources. Ordering materials is as easy as filling your cart with the resources you want and submitting your request. Northwest AEA anticipates ordering more digital content in the future, and SNAP has an embedded video player that will allow teachers to view and download digital videos purchased by Northwest AEA or Prairie Lakes AEA.

If you have any questions about the new system, please contact Ann Derochie, circulation coordinator in the Sioux City office, at 712/222-6065, or Kim Noteboom, circulation coordinator in the Sioux Center office, at 712/722-4378 ext. 7817.
