How to Find a Class Set of Books

  1. From the Search page, enter 5 Keywords: Class set Multiple copies Books.
  2. Select a Grade level (deselect “All Grades”).
  3. Select “Subject” from Fields to Search.
  4. Scroll over the order numbers to see how many copies are in the kit. The subject “Class set” is used for any set with 14 or more copies.
  5. You may want to change the Sort order so that the results are in Grade level order rather than alphabetical order.
  6. You may find it helpful to restrict your search to “Fiction” (from Book Limiter) if you are looking for novels.
