Our mission is to link people to the world. In order to do so, we need to offer an engaging experience that makes people want to use our wealth of authoritative resources as readily as they want to use the non-library resources that they frequent.

With this goal in mind, we sought a partner who could offer a full package app to link our users to our resources in a way that was more accessible.

With this channel students can locate any book on reserve and see if it has been checked out or if it is available. Boopsie was very responsive to our needs and delivered what we needed to serve our students.

“The biggest mistake we made as a company was betting too much on HTML5. We had to start over and rewrite everything to be native. We burned two years. It may turn out to be the biggest strategic mistake we made. We realized the only way we could get there was to go native.”- Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, Facebook
