Addison upgrade: Addison Mobile

Aug. 9, 2010 – Addison Mobile has been available since mid-spring 2010, but it's worth mentioning again as we highlight new and upgraded features in Addison.

Addison Mobile

Addison Mobile provides a lightweight view of Addison customized for users of wireless PDA's, such as the Palm or Blackberry handheld devices, and Internet-enabled cell phones. The Addison Mobile server will attempt to detect the type of PDA you are using and deliver displays formatted for that device, without extra graphics, JavaScript, or cookies that can confuse some PDA's. Addison Mobile may also be useful for users of screen readers or special software designed to aid visual handicaps.

Addison Mobile allows you to search Addison from any location with wireless access. You may search the catalog from the classroom, while browsing the stacks, or from an Internet cafe. You may place requests for books, renew books, cancel holds, and view pending requests on library materials.

Addison Mobile does not display subject headings, added titles and authors, and other fields that typically display below the item or holding box. It does display journal holdings (print and online) as well as links to other online materials like ebooks.
