Library Anywhere write-up on ALA TechSource blog

Library Anywhere, our upcoming product that provides a mobile catalog (both mobile web and native apps) for any library, just got an excellent write-up on the ALA TechSource blog: LibraryThing Delivers Mobile Access to Library Catalogs.

The article, by Marshall Breeding, will also appear in the March 2010 issue of Smart Libraries Newsletter.

Breeding says of Library Anywhere,

“With the high level of functionality and the low pricing, this competition will lower the threshold for mobile technology into the reach of almost any library.”

We’re certainly excited about Library Anywhere, and are busy at work on it. We’ll have more to show off soon!

    I'm still not sure how this is better than browsing my library's website on my iphone.

    Could we get a card-catalog interface?

  2. Mike says:

    Is it too late for libraries to participate in beta development?

    Mike—nope, not too late! Email me (abby at

    I'm totally addicted to libraries 🙂 this app is perfect for me, thanks for posting!

    I want to beta test for our library —how do I do this?

    Any work on an Android version? Up and coming, cheaper iPhone alternative with just as many quality apps.
