Library Catalog App- BookMyne

Ever been at the bookstore and noticed that cool new hardcover you wanted to read but didn’t have the 19.99 to get it?

Well, now, just pull out your iPhone and check the BookMyne app to see if we have it!

You can find the BookMyne app in the iPhone app store by doing a name search or you can visit its app page directly here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bookmyne/id350625461

After you have found the app in the iPhone app store and it has downloaded to phone’s screen. Simply tab on the app.

If you “allow” for BookMyne to know your location, it will bring up the OCCC Library in a listing of nearby libraries but if not, simply click on the magnifying glass and do a name search for OCCC Library.

Once on the OCCC Library page, simply tap the star to save it as your library.

So, now, you can know on the go what the library owns in terms of books, eBooks, eAudioBooks, regular audiobooks, videos, DVDs, etc. by using the BookMyne app.

In addition (from the BookMyne website) to providing mobile access to in-demand library information, holdings and services, BookMyne 2.1 offers a myriad of patron-pleasing features including:

  • Barcode scanning capability, so library users can scan the barcode of a book at a bookstore or friend’s home and retrieve availability information on the book at the patron’s library of choice;
  • Social recommendation engine powered via Goodreads, enabling iPhone or iPod Touch users to search library holding for friend-recommended reads;
  • New York Times best seller list cross-referencing, enabling users to immediately cross-check the best seller list with library holdings and place holds remotely;
  • Enhanced account interaction, including the ability for library users to view fines and fees on their Apple mobile device.
