iPhone, Android, or Kindle: The Emma S. Clark Memorial Library Has an App for That and So Can You
Johnson, Bob; Gutmann, Ted
Computers in Libraries, v33 n1 p6-8, 30-31 Jan-Feb 2013
If you are like the millions of people buying the latest smartphone, iPhone 5, or Samsung Galaxy S III, your local library should have something to offer you. The Emma S. Clark Memorial Library, for one, has an app for that! Dubbed "Emma Mobile," the library's application works with iOS (Apple), Android (Google), and Amazon Kindle Fire devices. With Emma Mobile, you can: (1) scan an ISBN and automatically search the library's catalog to see if it owns it; (2) place a hold on the item; (3) auto-log in to search online databases and check one's account; (4) request notifications about items on hold, fines, and card renewal; (5) search the library catalog by category; (6) view the library calendar of events; (7) get turn-by-turn directions to the library; (8) complete one-touch phone calls; and (9) send email to the library. The app has been successfully deployed and installed for the past year to fantastic reviews and experiences by patrons. It recently saw an upgrade that will allow for OverDrive ebook integration and a digital library card in early 2013.
