Website Updates - Mobile site and Branch Pages

By Camille T. RSS Wed, February 2, 2011

Our website is constantly evolving to allow you quick access to our resources, and we love when we get feedback and suggestions from patrons. One patron suggested we provide links on our mobile website to our ebooks so she could easily download books to her phone--done! Another patron wanted to know what was open after 5 p.m., so he could visit after work-- done!

Below you will find a list of updates:

Mobile Website Updates:

  • New layout design
  • Find a Location - quickly see what's open Today, This Morning, This Evening, This Saturday
  • Digital Downloads - browse our ebooks, audiobooks, music, and videos, and download them to your mobile device

Your branch hours info page for Philadelphia City Institute says there is a book drop now, I just went to go drop off my books and the drop was locked shut. Please check the info for your branches, I use it ALL the time and previously the PCI page said there was NO book drop so I when I saw the change today, I figured it was true. Whoops.

Hi: There is a slot in the door for books. I have used it in the past.

From an aesthetic point of view, the mobile version is some great work! User-friendly as it should be. Also great to read about the use of feedback, listening to the community's wishes and apply changes based on that. From practice () I can tell that many institutions could still learn from that.
