Type in your criteria (this could be a title, author, keyword, genre, ISBN, etc.) and click on the Search button to the right of the field. A book or a list of books will come up in My Library. If your results list is too long you can narrow your search. In the Search field, type in another piece of criteria and click on the Search button.

Select the columns by checking the boxes to the left of each criterion. Put the columns in order by highlighting one and then using the up and down arrow buttons to the right of the list. After you select your columns and put them in order, go back to My Library. You can print your entire library or do a search for a genre/keyword/author/etc. and print that list of books. Highlight the books you want printed (click on one and then hold down the shift key as you click on the last book to highlight a section or hold down the control key to select multiple individual books). Click on the File tab at the top of the screen then click on Print from the drop down menu.
