Boopsie Star Program Certifies Vendor Partners for One-Click Access from Library Apps
PALO ALTO, CA – November 13, 2012 – Boopsie, the leading mobile solution for universities and libraries worldwide, today announced a program for library vendors to increase the visibility of their mobile apps by making them accessible through the Boopsie mobile portal. Libraries with the Boopsie mobile app that subscribe to Boopsie Star Partners’ services can provide access to their valuable resources with one click from their mobile home screen.
The Boopsie Star Program currently includes a range of services available in most libraries including Overdrive, Mango Languages, Tutor.com, Credo Reference, EBSCO, Gale/Cengage Learning, Recorded Books, and Library H3lp. The Boopsie mobile app is in use in more than 2500 libraries and universities.
“Library patrons want to do more than simply access the library’s catalog from their mobile device,” said Greg Carpenter, Boopsie CEO. “They want one point of access to what the library has to offer. That’s why Boopsie is aggressively seeking Star Partners to make their mobile apps accessible through the Boopsie app. With one click from the library’s Boopsie mobile home screen, patrons can instantly access valuable services to which their library subscribes. This enhances service to patrons and increases the return on investment the library has made in databases and other rich resources.”
