Madison, WI -- November 12, 2018. Demco Software announced the launch of DiscoverMobile version 1, a mobile app that completely transforms the ways in which public libraries engage their communities. DiscoverMobile puts all of a library's resources – from books, to events, to meeting rooms, to databases and other third-party subscriptions – into a sleek, patron-friendly app that allows users to interact with their library on the go.
Research completed by the Pew Research Center has shown that only 1 in 5 people surveyed feel they're aware of all or most of the services and programs their public libraries offer. DiscoverMobile was built to bridge that gap by enabling public libraries to provide members of their community with a curated, mobile experience that rivals the in-person experience of visiting a physical library branch.
"Amplified by our day-in and day-out collaboration with our customers, the Demco Software team has a deep understanding and appreciation for the value that public libraries bring their communities," said Demco Software Marketing Director Kayla Fargo. "But that value is often underestimated or overlooked by community members who don't engage with their libraries' physical location and resources on a regular basis. DiscoverMobile will open up a new range of engagement possibilities by enabling libraries to meet their communitymembers where they already are – on their mobile devices."
Details on DiscoverMobile's capabilities will be shared during a free product webinar and demo on November 15, 2018. Public library leaders, librarians, and outreach coordinators are invited to attend Thursday's event to learn more about how DiscoverMobile can transform their libraries' community engagement strategy.
