SPL Mobile Review


The Seattle Public Library in your pocket! The catalog, My Account, and some features of the Library Web site are now available from your Web-enabled phone. Search the Library catalog for a title, place holds, renew items you have checked out, see what you have on hold, and view most account information. You can Ask a Librarian a question via instant messaging, text, or telephone during Library open hours (phone feature dependent). Check the calendar of events for classes, story times, author readings, and other programs. Find your nearest Library location on the map and view hours, addresses, and other information. Use book, DVD, CD and audio book lists to discover new or recommended titles. Read the latest entries on Library blogs and our Facebook fan page.

The mobile catalog offers a great new way to find items - just type the first couple of letters of words. Type 'row gob' for J.K. Rowlings' "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." For "Gossip Girl" titles, type 'gos gi.' To find a specific "Gossip Girl" title like "Because I'm Worth It," you only have to type 'gos gi be.'

    The older version of the app ran well. It wasn’t anything fancy, but it allowed me to look up library hours and addresses, keep our kids’ library cards on file, search the catalog and place holds, renew checked out books etc.I still use the updated app to look up library info, and keep library cards on file. However... the latest iteration of this app seems to have trouble remembering my login, so I have to re-log-in any time I want to place a hold, except that it only reloads the top page and never gets to the actual login screen... but then, it doesn’t even let me place a hold (just keeps reloading the catalog listing). The end result is that I’m less able to spontaneously access the library resources to look up and hold books while going about my day. I look forward to a more functional updated version of this app.

    Hello, I love the app and use it constantly. I store library card # in it among other things. Whenever you update you erase any stored data like my library card #. It is a minor annoyance and causes me to have ask the librarian to look mine up for me. Please allow us to save our data in Apple Key Chain or other. Also, can you add Passbook support for when I just want to scan my card at check out at the Library? Thank you!

    I have wasted so much time trying to get this app to work. First of all, there’s no logic to its operation. Secondly, it let me into one part of the app and then kicked me out and erased my long numerical user code. Now I’m locked out until I can go scan my card again. I have to physically call the library to get my pw reset! Arrghhh! The library needs funding to get this app programmed right!

    Love the library
    I have used this app for the past year and loved it. Very easy to search the catalog, reserve books and check account status. But starting in mid- January 2013 something has happened. It really isn't working at all. Other than to allow a search. Once you try to do anything else an "error" occurs and you start all over. Disappointing.
