2019-05-news-mobile-app.pngSWAN staff received access to the test instances of the BLUEcloud mobile app on April 25th. We have spent the past week testing all 98 app profiles, along with members of our Discovery and User Experience Advisory Group (DUX).

Branding set up is complete, and patrons are automatically directed to your profile when they log in. We've also verified the linked accounts are working, as well as the "scan ISBN barcode" search feature, which allows patrons to scan an ISBN barcode with their phone's camera and pull it up if it is in the catalog.

However, we have identified several areas to address before the app is ready for patrons. These include:

  • Reviewing and correcting eResource Central (eRC) integrations to ensure your Overdrive, Baker & Taylor, and other e-materials collections are appearing correctly
  • Slowness and issues with viewing holds, and suspending and unsuspending holds
  • Display of item availability
  • Troubleshooting our Syndetics integration, which provides item covers, summaries, table of contents, and other enhanced content for items
  • Setting up fines and ProPay integration

We will be working with SirsiDynix to resolve these issues and complete your configurations before sharing the test app more widely among the membership.

We know many of you would like to begin offering the app to your patrons as soon as possible. At this time, we do not have a go-live date. We appreciate your patience as we continue to test and ensure the app is working as intended, and we will update you as we have more information.
