Ratings and Reviews Come to Boopsie Mobile App

Boopsie for Libraries will add rating and reviewing capabilities to its mobile platform. Mobile app users will be able to rate library catalog titles using a 1- to 5-star system and review any title (including anonymously or using an alias). They can also view other users’ ratings and reviews.

“Users are more likely to take advantage of library services if they mimic those that they voluntarily choose to use in their free time. Case in point: 64% of library users say that they’re likely to use recommendation functionality,” says Tony Medrano, Boopsie’s CEO. “By offering Ratings and Reviews, we’re making the library’s services recognizable to these digital users and more accessible to the diverse communities that each library serves.”

For more information, read the press release.
