We have been extending service provision for citizens and engaging with the wider community through innovative use of electronic services and applications (Apps) for mobile devices. Our work in mobile devices is best seen in the context of our wide-ranging social media and digital communication strategy.
The first of its kind for a Scottish public library, the Edinburgh Library app has up to date information about library events, activities, and service updates that are usually only available on the library website. The app also includes Bus Tracker, First Bus timetable information, and additional content from Edinburgh City Libraries.
The app is available on the iStore and for Android users. You can also download the app by scanning the QR (quick response code) into your camera phone
In Edinburgh, Libraries and Information services have demonstrated an innovative contribution to the city’s electronic information, technology at the same time as improving access and quality of service.
Edinburgh’s Libraries are not only about books, learning and formal information provision, they are about healthy communication networks and well informed neighbourhoods.
