2021 Book Systems Accomplishments Narrative

2021 was another successful year for Book Systems Inc. The company continues to see its most considerable growth in the Public Library market.

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our development focused on implementing features to facilitate libraries by safely providing new services for their patrons. These new features included:

  • Librista CheckIT: A touchless patron circulation mobile app,
  • Auto quarantine protocol workflows,
  • Custom reading list for curbside services.

Other Atriuum enhancements added in 2021 include:

  • API integration with Hoopla
  • Workflow improvements with Acquisitions and ILLs
  • Improved accessibility support (keyboard and screen readers)
  • Integrations with Comprise SmartPAY
  • Librista 2.0 mobile app for Atriuum

Book Systems strives to stay at the forefront of technology by investing and constantly evaluating the newest emerging technologies and frameworks. We build on the most reliable and time-proven development methodologies that ensure successful, robust, and scalable ILS solutions. One in particular is Flutter, a new mobile app development platform that allows us to develop products once and then push them to multiple platforms (iOS, Android, and Desktop). These advancements in technology provide the ability to deploy new features and updates in a much faster capacity.

Our newest OPAC interfaces, Gallery and Quilt (kidsí interactive catalog), use JavaScript 6, one of the marketís latest and most up-to-date platforms. Quilt also uses WebGL (Short for Web Graphics Library), a JavaScript API for rendering interactive 2D and 3D graphics within any compatible web browser, without plug-ins. WebGL is fully integrated with other web standards, allowing GPU-accelerated physics, image processing, and effects as part of the web page canvas. WebGL elements can be mixed with other HTML elements and composited with other page or page background parts.

What does this all mean? Quilt provides libraries with an advanced visual-learning interface to engage and encourage young readers to use the online catalog, whether accessed from a desktop computer or mobile device. Both Gallery and Quilt are fully web-responsive and do not require installing or maintaining a mobile app.

How does this impact our customers? These advanced technologies ensure that our customers are kept updated with the most cutting-edge technology on the market, and are part of the software updates provided with the Atriuum Customer Service Agreement and Maintenance plan.
