This isn't brand new news, but I was reminded of it today. SirsiDynix is holding a contest to name their new iPhone app (to be released sometime in 2010 - no other date given). From the contest page:
SirsiDynix is excited to announce an iPhone application that will be available in 2010. The app will give iPhone users information and catalog access to libraries using Symphony. We need your help deciding what to name it.
If we choose your entry, you will win an iPod Touch!
The SirsiDynix iPhone app will offer quick access to your library catalog with a simple discovery interface
Any library staff member is eligible to submit up to five possible names. Help us get the word out - send this page to coworkers and peers.
- Users find your library through GPS or on a global map
- Patrons can search their library's catalog, place holds, and view a list of their own checked out items
- Libraries can configure the set of available physical library locations and the policies tied to those locations, the library URL, and an image for each library
To enter, fill out the form below before November 25, 2009. The winner will be announced in December.
