Library AnywhereYou can now take the library with you wherever you go. Rodman Public Library is pleased to announce that we are now a part of Library Anywhere, a mobile application that lets you use the library on your smart phone or other web-capable device.

With this application, users can search the library catalog, place holds on items, and have access to library databases. Users can also find library hours and locations, including bookmobile stops, send questions to library staff members, and find information about events happening at the library. You can now have access to all of this right from your phone.

Library Anywhere has a special application for iPhones (iPads,etc.) and Androids, and a universal version for Blackberry and all other web-enabled devices. Search Rodman Library's catalog, place holds, renew items, and more, from your phone. Simply search for Library Anywhere in the app store (or equivalent) on your phone and download the application for free. Those not using iPhones or Android phones can find the application by visiting http://www.libanywhere.com/m/286 or http://m.rodmanlibrary.com.

Along with this new service, look for several enhancements to Rodman Public Library's catalog. We now offer book recommendations and similar titles within our catalog search feature to help you discover other titles that are related to your original search or a favorite author. Tagged browsing has also been added, which allows patrons to search and browse for books by tags (keywords and labels used to describe a book) that have been added by users of LibraryThing, an online home library cataloging service. The third enhancement to Rodman Library's catalog is links to related editions and translations of the same work.

Find all of these by searching Rodman Public Library's catalog at roc.rodmanlibrary.com, or with the new mobile application.
