24/7 Library self service in the palm of your hand!
What’s your strategy and vision? Freeing up staff from the “transactional” to the “people”? Enabling them to work with customers by moving to a contactless strategy? Reviewing that expensive kiosk and hardware spend?
Did you know that you can now borrow and return books and other items using just your SOLUS Library app? Just borrow easily and hygienically directly from your own smartphone with the ‘self-checkout’ option.
Isn’t this even more important now as a hygienic, contactless way to use the library and access it 24/7 from anywhere?
Never forget or replace a library card, linked accounts, no more queuing at desks or kiosks! Still need all of those expensive kiosks?
Look at this great video example of the Dublin City Libraries app which was launched over 3 years ago, it’s a great way of accessing library services and your library account, finding your nearest library and checking the library catalogue….. and now with even more functionality!
Use your smartphone or tablet to view the catalogue to see the huge range of eBooks, eMagazines, audiobooks and music streaming services. It’s multilingual too!
