New Developments at Boopsie!

With Halloween coming up, we’ve got a trick or treat theme going on. Here at Boopsie, we’re all about the treats!

Treat! Add the New EBSCOhost integration for free until October 31st!
From now until October 31st you can add our new EBSCOhost integration to your app, for free!
Your patrons and students will be able to access all of your EBSCOhost resources, without leaving your library app or downloading another app. The new integration is easy-to-use, and allows patrons to research from their smartphones or tablets, as well as read the documents in an embedded PDF and HTML reader.

Dramatic Increase in Digital Comics’ Circulation After Integration
Houston Public shows a ~10x increase in circulation after adding comics to their Boopsie app. Click here to learn how easy it was for HPL!

Survey Says….

90% of patrons using Washington State Library’s app from Boopsie use it as an extension of in-library services. Boopsie does not want to own the users, but to help libraries reach their users with their services with their apps.
Boopsie is offering all Optimum+ customers a free 30-day survey to help them learn about how their apps are being used by their patrons. Please contact your Account Manager for more information.

Treat: User Interface Upgrade
Boopsie’s Optimum Plus library-partners received a free User Interface upgrade last month. Their app users can now quickly access their main menu, account and catalog search from anywhere in the app with their bottom navigation bar.

Coming Soon!

ILS Quality Score
Boopsie’s mission is to help libraries serve their patrons, and the more objective information we can provide you the better. The “ILS Quality Score” will be based on quantitative performance metrics that the company monitors via their integrations with all major ILSs through their “AccessILS technology“. More information coming soon!
