Abstract: Biblionix announced that its ground-breaking Reserve Express capability has been significantly enhanced. The Apollo ILS/LSP Reserve Express feature has allowed patrons to subscribe to their favorite authors for receiving new titles. Whenever staff catalogs such new books, they simply click a button to add all subscribers to the reserve list, in random order. This lets patrons rest easy and not be concerned with the arrival timing of new books; as subscribers, they know they’ll receive them. And staff need not maintain manual lists of subscribers.


Austin, Texas – July 30, 2019 - Biblionix today announced that its ground-breaking Reserve Express capability has been significantly enhanced. The Apollo ILS/LSP Reserve Express feature has allowed patrons to subscribe to their favorite authors for receiving new titles. Whenever staff catalogs such new books, they simply click a button to add all subscribers to the reserve list, in random order. This lets patrons rest easy and not be concerned with the arrival timing of new books; as subscribers, they know they'll receive them. And staff need not maintain manual lists of subscribers.

With this enhancement, libraries can now let patrons choose among non-book media as well as to subscribe to series. For example, patrons can opt to get new titles from favorite authors as ‘book' or ‘CD' or ‘Large Print'. Similarly, series can be subscribed to, but typically only for those with multiple authors.

The enhancement is available to all Apollo customers immediately and is free of charge.

For more information on Biblionix, and its intuitive, imaginative solutions solely for public libraries with less than 300,000 holdings, visit the website at biblionix.com or contact Dick Moeller at dick@biblionix.com.
