AccessMyLibrary on the iPhone

Yep – AccessMyLibrary is mobile!
The iPhone/GPS app AccessMyLibrary from Gale will point you to libraries within a 10-mile radius of your location. (libraries that do not subscribe to a Gale product are not shown – which isn’t a large number). You can then select a library and obtain access to all its Gale electronic resources. You can also use this app to find the address or to contact libraries in your area.

  1. A shame that Access My Library only seems to be aware of two countries – .US and .CA – Gale has customers in other countries too.
    Worldcat can work out how to resolve more about your location – in more countries than 2 – about time Gale does.
    A new challenge to take to a new job.
    And of course on the mobile application as well – cause GPS makes it easier.
    Yes. Gotta start somewhere. I remember when Google Maps was only the US too and it still doesn’t cover everywhere with all functionality.
    I remember when the US finally unscrambled the GPS signals. It hasn’t been that long since you required security clearance and licensing fees to use GPS.

  2. I think you are missing my point
    Access my Library has been around since at least 2006 – and should be less US/CA centric. OCLC has worked out how to leverage users IP to workout/infer location.
    Sure that is their biggest market – but not the only one.
