POMONA, CA - March 23, 2010 - Auto-Graphics, Inc. (OTCBB: AUGR), a technology innovator providing library automation solutions for 40 years, today announced that its first generation iPhone Application, iLib2Go, will be available to preview at the PLA National Conference in Portland, OR from March 24-26, 2010 at Booth #1559. iLib2Go seamlessly delivers library resources to patrons by linking emerging web 2.0 and mobile technology.

iLib2Go was developed using the latest iPhone SDK (Version 3.1.3). The application locates available libraries using a mapping function and allows patrons to view their account and search library resources to find, renew and place reserves on items within the catalog. In addition, patrons can use the iLib2Go interface to suggest items for their library to purchase, providing the library with direct feedback about what types of items patrons are looking for. Also integrated into iLib2Go is StackMap, a unique feature that provides the patron with a map of the physical location of an item within the walls of the library, allowing patrons to go directly to an available item without having to consult a library kiosk.

The iLib2Go will be an option made available to new and existing customers in the second quarter 2010.

Interested media and partners can visit Booth #1559 at the PLA National Conference for a demonstration of the product; to schedule a preview, please contact Kim Masterson at (909) 569-1529 or kxm@auto-graphics.com.
