A big time in the Big Easy

The bibliotheca team just returned from ALA in New Orleans where we had a wonderful time reconnecting with friends and customers! It was a packed weekend as we introduced our new cloudLibrary modules, hosted a session sharing the recent success our customers have experienced with open+, and helped sponsor a NOLA style crawfish boil in support of EveryLibrary and the good work they do for libraries around the country. Thanks to everyone that stopped by the bibliotheca exhibition hall booth and signed our interactive wall!

cloudLibrary evolves to help physical selfCheck users

Creating a more engaging experience for your library users, cloudLibrary now offers new features that help your physical borrowers stay organized with a convenient virtual library card, interactive receipts, due date reminders, organized packing lists and the ability to sort/filter and favorite items. With a clean and modern UI, this app helps library users manage their borrowing history with ease and clarity. Click here to download the new cloudLibrary modules brochure.

With three distinct modules that libraries can mix-and-match, cloudLibrary offers bibliotheca customers a great app experience for their users. Don’t miss the animated explainer video!
