SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (March 15, 2013) – SirsiDynix, the world's leading provider of library automation solutions, revealed SirsiDynix MobileCirc at COSUGI 2013. MobileCirc, available in summer 2013 for both SirsiDynix Horizon and Symphony libraries, is a portable client for circulation, inventory, and shelving tasks. MobileCirc will be released as an Android or iOS app or as a browser-based web app.
"MobileCirc gives library staff a streamlined set of circulation features they can carry with them into the stacks," said SirsiDynix CTO Talin Bingham. "With MobileCirc, the information you need from your ILS is always at hand. Some libraries may use MobileCirc as a lightweight circulation client that lets their staff go where their community needs them; others will use it for daily shelving tasks or yearly inventory. It's available for iOS, Android, and as a browser-based application for laptops and desktops, making it easy for libraries to adapt it to their needs."
MobileCirc enables library staff to work wherever they are, with or without a data connection. Features of MobileCirc include the following:
- Mobile circulation. MobileCirc allows library staff to perform common circulation tasks like check-ins, checkouts, and renewals. Staff can also register new users by scanning driver's licenses or by manually entering user information.
- Flexible Inventory. MobileCirc integrates with Bluetooth scanners to make taking inventory faster and easier.
- Efficient Shelving. MobileCirc provides real-time lists of candidates for weeding and items needed to fill holds. MobileCirc lists include filters designed specifically for library staff.
