The Daniel Boone Regional Library has been soft-launching a mobile version of its website over the past few weeks.
In addition to a catalog search and library account management features, the site includes information on library hours, locations, news and programs.
“I think it will make our library more accessible to those in Boone and Callaway counties,” Mitzi St. John, library system public relations administrator, said.
The website was created in-house by web developer Nathan Pauley and is targeted at devices running Apple’s iOS — including the iPhone and iPod Touch — and Google’s Android operating systems. It only took a couple of weeks to develop because it did not require a complete redesign of the main website, Pauley said.
In the future, the library hopes to improve the catalog search currently on the mobile site by integrating it into a smart phone application instead of linking it back to the desktop site.
"We're hoping that we will have an app soon," St. John said.
