PROVO, UTAH (December 6, 2011) SirsiDynix, the world's leading provider of library technology solutions, today announces the 3.0 release of the BookMyne mobile application. BookMyne 3.0 brings the complete mobile capabilities of BookMyne to Android mobile users and improves on its sleek interface with streamlined navigation for users. With this release, library customers can also opt to create their own customized version of the leading library mobile application by selecting BookMyne+.

"BookMyne+ provides better mobile data and access than any other customizable library mobile app," said SirsiDynix Director of Product Management Nathan Guinn. "Because of its tight integration with SirsiDynix Web Services into the ILS, library users can continually access the most current library holdings information. No bibliographic exporting of records to index, no manual updating on the library's part just automatic, clean integration."

Similarly, thanks to its cohesive platform, BookMyne enables users to view My Account and My Lists, make changes and view updates from their mobile device. Any changes made to the ILS are immediately reflected to library users.

BookMyne+ is unique in that it can integrate multiple data sources, enabling academic, public or special libraries to push out event notifications, reading lists, social alerts or suggested links via their custom-branded BookMyne+ mobile interface. The result is a unique app, published to the respective app stores for the library's users to download.

"Another thing that sets us apart from a mobile standpoint is the BookMyne e-book integration, with single-click downloading," Guinn said. "BookMyne and BookMyne+ currently support Project Gutenberg e-books and the range of services we provide in this area is going to expand significantly in the summer of 2012. BookMyne users will be on the forefront of that."

SirsiDynix library users can download BookMyne 3.0 from the Apple App Store or Android Market. Libraries interested in purchasing BookMyne+ are invited to contact their SirsiDynix representative.
