Innovative Mobile App Encourages Contactless Library Interactions
Innovative introduced a mobile app for global public libraries that use the Sierra or Polaris ILS. The app is customized for each library’s site, “with branding and the look and feel designed by the library. Innovative Mobile offers full access to the library catalog and allows patrons to search and find both physical and electronic library materials.” It can be used with both iOS and Android devices and has features such as linked accounts that enable adults to manage children’s accounts, the ability to have patrons pay fines in-app, and the usage of barcodes or radio frequency identification (RFID) to help patrons borrow and return items to limit physical contact.
For more information, read the press release.
