Search MC Library's catalog via your smart phone

From Cecilia Miranda
Automation/Technical Services Librarian

You can now search Midland College - Fasken LRC catalog via your smart phones (iPhone or Android) and a few other mobile devices.

You will need to download (from your regular App source) the FREE App: BookMyne in order to search our catalog and over one thousand other libraries' catalogs searchable through this tool. To find the Fasken LRC's catalog among all the libraries listed, either enable your smart phone's GPS or search for Name: Midland College then scroll until you locate our library.

Two caveats, though ...

We have BookMyne (the basic version) not BookMyne + (enhanced version) so not all functions are available in the basic version. And, if you use BookMyne's "Suggested Reading" or their NYT Bestseller lists, please be aware that these lists refer to a specific edition of a book. When using these lists, you might get the message: No copies found in library. However, we might have a different edition of the same title, which you can locate when you search BookMyne by Title or Author.

For more information ... sirsidynix.com and newholsteinlibrary.org (both are Adobe .pdf files)

Let me know if you have any questions,
