Library on the move

Did you know there is an app for Library, Special Collections and Museums (LSC&M) on the University’s iAberdeen app for iOS and Android smart phones?

The library app lets you search across LSC&M catalogues using our resource discovery tool, Primo. Key features include an option to login to My Account where you can view and renew your loans, view your requests for books, check for messages from the library, and view details of favourite titles saved to your personal e-Shelf.

Once logged in you are able to make an advance booking on an item from a Heavy Demand collection, recall a book out on loan to someone else, and request an item to be delivered to your home library from a remote store or library on a different campus.

We think this app offers a quick and easy way of accessing our catalogues, linking to our electronic resources, and much more – wherever you are, even when you are on the move!

 

For more information and barcodes to download the app to your smart phone see the University’s iAberdeen Mobile app web page. Answers to some frequently asked questions are also available online.

Windows smart phone owners can make use of a mobile version of iAberdeen.
