TO : Network Libraries
The BARD Mobile application for iOS devices, version 1.0, is now available at Apple’s online app store: itunes.apple.com/us/app/bard-mobile/id705229586.
Network libraries that previewed the application should delete the preview version from their device before downloading and installing BARD Mobile 1.0 from the app store.
Patrons who experience difficulty finding the app should be instructed to search online in the app store using the term “bardmobile” or “nls.”
The BARD Mobile app enables NLS patrons to download audio and braille books, magazines, and music scores directly to their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, provided they have a BARD account. The app is free of charge.
The user guide is available in the Help section of the app and online in HTML format at nlsbard.loc.gov/apidocs/BARDMobile.userguide.iOS.current.html.
