Bedford Public Library System (VA) Launches TLC•Go! Mobile App
Bedford Public Library System (BPLS) is now live with TLC•Go!, a mobile app solution provided by The Library Corporation (TLC).
BPLS is able to offer library services via Android and iOS to its community in and around Bedford, Virginia. TLC•Go! provides a seamless connection to BPLS’s integrated library system, Library•Solution.
TLC has operated continuously under the same ownership since 1974 and employs over 200 people dedicated to delivering enterprise software and hardware solutions to public, school, academic, and special libraries worldwide. TLC’s cumulative products are deployed in more than 1,100 organizations, representing over 5,500 locations in North America and worldwide. TLC is certified by the U.S. General Services Administration, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, and the Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program. TLC’s Headquarters is based in Inwood, W.Va., and has additional offices in Colorado, Minnesota, and Singapore.
According to TLC, many library patrons in the Bedford community have internet access only through their phones. “Creating more access to the library and the resources available is what it’s all about,” shared Annie Kirkland, special projects manager at TLC. “TLC•Go! makes it possible to search the library catalog and access other resources, all from one place, allowing TLC libraries to meet their users at the point of need.”
“This new app gives our patrons much better access to our catalog through the device they use the most,” said Julie Wyatt, technology librarian at the Bedford Public Library System. “We’re also excited that it allows us to link to many of our other services,” she added. “Patrons aren’t downloading a ‘one use’ application to their devices. The app connects to our e-book providers, event calendar, research databases, and more—right at their fingertips!”
