The NY 3Rs Association, Inc. negotiated a deal with Boopsie for Libraries to offer a discount for academic and public libraries (MHLS libraries only) . Boopsie for Libraries has created a smart phone application that they will create, customize, and brand for the library to include a variety of features, allowing libraries to go mobile in an easy and affordable way, even if they lack the technical expertise in-house.
Using the Boopsie application, patrons can not only search the library catalog but also ask one of your reference librarians a question by text, check out Overdrive books in just a few clicks, search for a book in your catalog that you found in in a book store by scanning the ISBN, browse your calendar of events and much, much more all from a single application! The application works with both Apple and Android products and you can customize the interface to keep with your library’s branding.
