We have recently developed a mobile webApp (https://lb-public.lboro.ac.uk/mobile/library/) to support access to a range of our Library services from student and staff owned mobile devices.
Library services provided via the webApp currently include opening hours, your borrowing details, reading lists, room booking information, contact details, events and library news. It is intended that further development will take place over the coming months to incorporate new features into the webApp based upon feedback from our users.
Version 2 of our mobile webApp was released on 7th March 2013 and included the following new features:
- Renew of loan items
- Cancel item requests
- Current Library PC availability (based upon the lab availability system)
Version 3 of the mobile webApp was released on the 23rd April 2013 and included the following additional features:
- Make a room/resource booking
- Cancel existing room/resource bookings
- New “Library on Tour” section (with information about accessing library resources over the summer)
