Softlink and Overdrive are official partners in Australia to facilitate the content delivery systems found in libraries. Since most users are buying tablet computers and smartphones, Softlink has just released new apps for iOS and Android that give you enhanced library information.
The Library Link mobile application is now available for borrowers to view and renew library resources on the go. Softlink enables users to connect to library services through multiple devices, including smart phones, iPads, laptops, and more. There is a number of key features found in this application, such as searching for available resources, checking your alert messages for overdues or holds, viewing library information (location and opening hours), scanning ISBNs or barcodes to automatically retrieve resources from the system, viewing the library’s latest resources, and finally viewing and placing a renewal for your loaned items. Steven Mayocchi, Softlink’s Development Manager, said that “Softlink’s current focus is to provide mobile solutions for schools and resource centres to enhance their service delivery and we will continually offer the latest technology innovations for our users.”
