UCLA Library Launches iPhone App

 The Simul8 Group has released a UCLA Library iPhone App for Fall Quarter 2011.

 The app was created for iPhone/iPod Touch and tested on iOS version 4.2.1 (although it will likely run well on earlier versions as well). It is also compatible with iPad, although not made expressly as an iPad app.

 Features include:


* Search library catalog and filter (keyword, title, author, subject)

* See description, availability, and location of items

* Read reviews (from Goodreads)

* Find library hours and contacts

* See number of laptops available by campus location

 To install on iPhone/iPod Touch, search “UCLA Library” from the iPhone app store.

    There have been a number of Higher Ed mobile apps developed over the years. These projects have been extremely popular with campus administrations and libraries alike. They have also been very popular with students and faculty. It’s great to see UCLA Library into this marketplace with it’s own app with a different approach to development than most of the other mobile offerings. The UCLA Library App has been developed exclusively by students. The app is in a number of ways similar to previous offerings, but the student involvement from conception to release offers insight into service offerings that we would never get from a professionally developed service.
