We’ve got an app for that! The LRC’s new app is now available for download on the App Store. The iPhone app lets you access a variety of different resources and services straight from you iOS device. The features of the app include: Library Hours, Catalog Search, Research, Ask-A-Librarian, Library Directory, My Account Link, Campus Map, Library Maps, and Link to Full Library Website
The research section in the app has links to a mobile catalog interface, mobile databases, library related apps, and YouTube tutorials from database vendors such as Credo Reference, EBSCOhost and JSTOR. A majority of the mobile databases that are accessible are EBSCOhost databases such as Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier, and PsycINFO. Additionally, mobile access is also provided for BioOne and JSTOR.
The LRC Catalog app is designed to allow you to search within the library’s catalog straight from your iOS device. In addition to being able to search within the catalog the app also has a built in barcode scanner that interprets ISBN barcodes and QR codes. Use the barcode scanner to scan ISBN barcodes to see if books are available at the LRC, and use the barcode scanner to scan the QR codes that are embedded in the library’s online catalog or other QR codes you see. This app serves as a complimentary app to the LRC app also available in the App Store.
