Take your library’s circulation anywhere with MobileStaff. The MobileStaff app for web, Android, and iOS, helps you check out items, register users, process holds, and perform inventory without being tethered to your desk.
Take your library anywhere
Circulate materials from wherever you are. Just open MobileStaff, and scan an item with a portable Bluetooth scanner or your mobile device’s camera. You can even attach an RFID scanner to your device to quickly check out materials and desensitize them on the spot.
No internet? No problem
With MobileStaff’s offline mode, you can leave your building behind and promote your library on the go. Sign up new users and check out materials as you please. When you next have internet access, MobileStaff will automatically sync with your LSP databases.
MobileStaff comes with MobileStaff Kiosk, a basic circulation mode that restricts the app to just Check In and Check Out. You can set up self-service at minimal cost, using just MobileStaff and a tablet.
Weeding and inventory in a fraction of the time
MobileStaff makes weeding and inventory simple by freeing you from your desk. Take MobileStaff along the stacks to scan your materials, and use MobileStaff’s weeding suggestions to prune your collection faster.
I can go to a patron’s home, pull up their account, and check in the items right then and there. I can also renew their items with confidence. I used to have to pick up their items and bring them back to the library and check them in at the end of the day. I would have maybe a dozen bags full of items. Now, I can check in as I go, and put routing slips in there and have them ready to go. It saves me a lot of time.
