The first phase of integration with Active Directory was also completed and has been put in place for CARL.X.

CARL.Connect Discovery v3.2 also boasts several new features aimed at further personalizing your library users' experience when using the mobile platform, and in keeping with TLC's focus on SocialLocalMobile (SoLoMo) expectations. The ability to brand your library's mobile search experience for inclusion in the Google Play Store is now available, with an option to add your app to the iTunes store being made available shortly. The new Mobile Search Results page now includes star ratings for materials, a clean, intuitive Search Result count, Title Details that include a book jacket display and the ability to email or text a link to that Title Detail. Mobile My Account features have also been enhanced in v3.2 to include Opt-In & Notifications services and access to Saved Lists, to name just a couple.
