bibliotheca’s new cloudLibrary modules create the most engaging experience for library users yet. Packed with new features, the new cloudLibrary modules help physical borrowers integrate their digital loans and organize multiple virtual library cards. The modules provide helpful interactive receipts, due date reminders, fun packing lists, the ability to sort/filter and favorite items, and introduce a mobile checkout experience for busy users on-the-go!

Learn how cloudLibrary enhances the experience of our other innovative self-service solutions, such as selfCheck, open+ and flex AMH.

We’ll also be showcasing new tower options for our remoteLocker system. The new options make it even more appealing to set up a convenient, small remote library branch for holds pickups anywhere within the community. Come see what’s new and exciting with this expanding system!

Find out how flex AMH is being used in Richmond Hill Public Library and Candiac Library to increase efficiency and improve service. Speak with our dedicated Canadian team about ways to improve efficiency at your library.


OLA open+ panel members

Join us for an open session about open+ on January 30th!

Extended Access Service Model: Leveraging Technology in Rural Libraries
By incorporating new open+ technology and an innovative combination of local and remote staffing, Hamilton Public Library has increased access to a rural branch from 17 to 60 hours per week. As more customers visit when it best suits them, the role of library as a community hub has been enhanced and the ROI has greatly improved. Hamilton was the first location in Canada to implement this technology. Come and learn about the extended access service model, the lessons they’ve learned and applied, the benefits of leveraging technology and their impressive outcomes.

Join Sherry Fahim, Director, Digital Technology and Creation and Dawna Petsche-Wark, Director, Public Service, Branches at Hamilton Public Library, as they discuss bibliotheca’s open+ solution.

Wednesday, Jan 30 | 11:20 am – 12:00 pm
Location: TBD
