North Vancouver City Library Reaches New Audience with MobileCirc

On March 4, 2015, staff from the North Vancouver City Library took their services to an audience they hadn’t reached before: the North Shore Business Expo. The library staff brought a set of newly purchased bestsellers to the trade fair, as well as just one piece of equipment: an iPad with SirsiDynix’s MobileCirc app. Available for tablets, smartphones, or any device with a web browser, MobileCirc gives libraries a way to connect with their communities outside the library walls. Staff can use MobileCirc to circulate materials and register users on the go, and when connected to the internet, MobileCirc records transactions to the library database in near real time.
