Next-Gen Mobile Discovery
Built on BLUEcloud architecture and native to iOS and Android, BLUEcloud Mobile2 provides patrons with effortless access to your library’s materials, anytime, anywhere.
Ensure every search starts with your library.
With rich new features and functionality, an intuitive interface, and ample opportunities for customization, this next-generation mobile application is designed to empower patrons and staff—and help carry your library into the future.
For your patrons:
Streamline the patron login experience with biometric authentication.
After a patron’s first sign-on, they can use fingerprint or facial recognition each time they revisit the app—no barcode numbers or passwords required.
Expedite the checkout process with scannable digital library cards.
Save patron and staff time with library cards that can be added to a patron’s digital wallet and scanned the second they reach the circulation desk.
Give patrons the power to check materials in or out on their mobile devices.
Fueled by the latest contactless communication technology, the new self-checkout feature allows patrons to seamlessly check materials in or out by scanning a library barcode.
Equip patrons with the tools they need to efficiently place and manage holds.
With BLUEcloud Mobile2’s convenient patron account interface, users can not only place new holds but track, suspend, cancel, or adjust the pickup location of existing ones.
Keep your community connected via My Account push notifications.
Deliver key account updates—including messages about available holds, overdue items, and fines and fees—directly to patrons who have opted to receive them.
For your team:
