While many of you are enjoying ALA midwinter and the new product release announcements, I saw this one from LibraryThing that I just couldn’t ignore. Following their new release of Shelf Browse, they will soon be launching a product called Library Anywhere.
Library Anywhere promises:
•A mobile catalog for any library, up and running in minutes.
•Mobile web and apps for iPhone, Blackberry and Android.
•Cheaper than you’d guess.
•Search, place holds, and more.
•Showcase hours, branches, and events.
•No installation process.
•Works with 90% of current OPACs.
•Comes with an “accessible version” that provides a fully Section 508-compliant version of your existing catalog
Check out their blog posting, Library Anywhere, a mobile library for everyone for more information and a link to their ALA handout.
