Reaching readers with new features in the December 2014 release of LibraryAware
Posted December 10, 2014
Reaching readers just got better and easier. With the new features in this release of LibraryAware, you’ll be able to create more items and post them to more places than ever before. Highlights of the release:
Get Pinning (and Tweeting)
One of the most common requests we hear is for the ability to post to Pinterest. That’s now available. Look for the “Post to Pinterest” option in all publish areas. (We also added some fun, new read-alike templates that are just perfect for sharing!) And for Twitter users, we added options for posting multiple images per tweet.
Create Book Lists in Just Minutes
Imagine that you publish newsletters full of recommended book titles (maybe something like NextReads newsletters?). Now imagine that you can click a button that pulls those same titles into nicely formatted, printed reading lists. Make a bookmark. Create a brochure. Hand them to patrons or leave them on display. It’s that easy. Really. You might not appreciate the full effect of this new feature until you see it in action, so we made a short animation to show you how cool it is:
Guide Readers with Shelf Signage
Enjoy making shelf talkers, but want more options? We’re on it. We made shelf talkers more flexible with different sizes and multiple formats per page. We also moved some things around and created a new template category called “Shelf Signage” that groups together shelf talkers, flyers, and other kinds of things that you can use to direct patrons through your stacks.
These new features are expected to roll out to current customers during the week of December 15, 2014. See a full list of updates and enhancements.
