Introducing the PolyU Library Mobile App – Your Smart Library Companion
October 18, 2023
The Library is excited to announce the launch of PolyU Library Mobile App, a smart and innovative app that will transform your experiences in using library collections, services and facilities into a seamless and satisfying journey.
- Leveraging Navigation with Augmented Reality (AR) Floor Plan
The mobile app combines Indoor Positioning and Bluetooth location tracking technologies into the Library floor plan. You can navigate the Library with ease using Augmented Reality (AR) Indoor Navigation. Simply point your phone in any direction and see the AR arrow sign guiding you to your destination. You can search for specific book collections, computers, group rooms and facilities in the floor plan, and find the path to get to their locations.
- Push Notification for Library Service
You can view your loan and requested items, renew borrowed items and keep track of the due dates with ease with the mobile app. Activate the push notifications and you will never miss out important updates and alert messages on your borrowing and returning records, upcoming due dates and pickup of requested items, etc.
- Empowering the iBooking
Apart from browsing the booking status of library facilities such as Group Rooms, Online Meeting Rooms, Studios and PC workstations, you can use the app to manage your bookings, make new reservations, and even check in and unlock the rooms for your reserved time slots.
- Real-time Availability of Seats & Facilities
The mobile app helps you to find available seats, PCs, and rooms with real-time information. You may see the occupancy level of each wing on all Library floors (except Podium Floor), as well as the availability of Group Rooms, Online Meeting Rooms, Studios and computers in the Library.
- Audio Guide for Outstanding Work by Students Showcase
Via the mobile app, you can listen to inspirational stories and engaging sharing sessions at PolyU Outstanding Work by Students (OWS) Showcase located at the expanded atrium of Library Podium Floor.
- Gateway to Library Collections and Services
You can enjoy convenient access to library collections and services. Discover information resources via OneSearch, view upcoming library events, get information about the Library including its opening hours, service points, contact information and more. A new Book Locator feature can assist you to identify the shelf location by subject and call number.
PolyU Library Mobile App is available on iOS App Store and Google Play for iPhone and Android mobile phones. Don’t miss out and download the app!
To enjoy the full features, please sign in with your NetID and NetPassword, and enable Notification and Bluetooth location tracking features in your mobile phones.
