The Ferguson Library Elevates the Mobile Experience
For more than 100 years, The Ferguson Library has supplied free and equal access to information for the people of Stamford, Connecticut. Although the library offered mobile access to its online catalog, patrons clamored for more—they wanted a native app to find books quickly and a scannable library card on their phones. That’s where the MyLibrary! mobile app came in.
“Our staff loves using the app while helping patrons on the floor. Instead of returning to the desk to search the catalog, they just open the app for real-time info.”—Maisam Nouh, Technology & Cataloging Librarian
