SWAN is working with SirsiDynix to release the BLUEcloud Mobile app at the end of April. We've been able to get most of the information needed for configuration from your websites, but we will need you to complete this short survey if:

  • Your library serves more than one community, or your name doesn't match the location you serve (e.g. Eisenhower Public Library serving Norridge and Harwood Heights)
  • You would like an events feed in your app

Fill Out the Survey

Please complete the survey by February 12th. 

We will list the name of your library and the communities you serve in the app description that appears in the app store.

If you don't have an RSS feed for your events (or do not fill out the survey) then we will include a link to the events page on your website, which will open inside the app. If you use Evanced or LibCal, we are able to get the RSS feed url for you -- however, please fill out the survey to let us know you use those services and would like us to set up the feed for you.

Your app configuration will include:

  • Your library's logo
  • Theme color based on your Enterprise profile
  • Your library's location, contact information, and website home page
  • Links to your databases and digital collections web pages, if available
  • Links to your social media pages (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram)
  • RSS feed of your events, if available, or a link to your events web page
  • Search configuration including your eResource Central (eRC) collections including Overdrive, Hoopla, Axis 360, and RB Digital

The app will be available for a period of testing before go-live, when you can make sure the information we have configured for you is correct. SWAN will also work with SirsiDynix to provide training in the administrative features of the app, so that your library can manage your own app. 

We're excited to get this rolled out to patrons! For more information on the app and its features, see the mobile app documention.
