Released as Library Link in 2013, Softlink's enhanced mobile app for libraries has been renamed Liberty Link, and is being demonstrated at the Australian Law Librarians Association Conference in Darwin in May.
ALLA delegates will be able to download the new Liberty Link app for free and use it to interact with a virtual law library. Instructions on how to take part in the virtual experience will be included in delegate satchels and on the Softlink stand in the exhibition hall.
There has been an increasing requirement for law librarians, information managers and researchers to give users easily accessible information on mobile devices.
To help Liberty library management system customers keep pace, the Liberty Link mobile app has seen some big enhancements to the self-help functionality.
The new mobile app sees an ever-increasing number of self-help functions including:
- Searching – including keyword, subject, author
- Viewing item details including location, availability and bibliographic details
- Downloading and reading of PDFs
- Viewing and renewing loans
- Highlighting of overdue loans
- Placing reservations
- Placing requests
- Viewing messages
- Viewing library information
- Viewing the new items and reading lists
Further features, based on our customers' suggestions, are planned for inclusion in the near future.
Visit Sarah, Softlink Information Centres Technical Services Manager, at the ALLA Softlink stand, who will be delighted to demonstrate how easy it is to download the Liberty Link app and use the self-help functionality to improve your library users access to information and assistance via their mobile devices.
