On the home screen, the app displays all information on individual memberships in libraries. At the top, you have three search options: barcode scanning, basic search and advanced search (right arrow). In the lower part of the screen you can select the
home screen, display of push notifications, My Shelf, library information and settings.
Klick START for the presentation.
Videos are only shown on larger screens. Mobile devices only display screenshots.
There are two was to login to your profile. You can select the registration data of the library you are a member of or use your e-mail if you created a profile in COBISS+ with your e-mail. By logging into your My COBISS user profile, you will have access
to the data on loaned and reserved material, access to the history of loaned material, My Shelf and push notifications. You can add multiple memberships to your profile.
The barcode of the
membership card is also displayed in My Library, which can be used to identify the library user. The barcode is displayed on the screen if you touch the barcode image next to the membership card number in My Library. The barcode
displayed on the screen can be used to identify a library user by scanning the code with the membership card number from the mobile device with a barcode scanner. All CCD barcode scanners that can scan a barcode from a mobile
device screen are supported.
IMPORTANT: This service is only available in libraries that have opted for this method of member identifications and that are equipped with a CCD barcode scanner.
Advanced search enables you to specify a search request more precisely. By doing this, you narrow down the number of results, which enables you to find what you are looking for more easily. You can search in all libraries or only in one library or library
department. You can search for the material by title, author, keywords or any of the other 30 categories. The search can be filtered by type of material or language. Once the search is complete, the search results are displayed
with some basic information about the material, i.e. type of material, title, author, year, language and holdings availability.
Once you select the material you were looking for, additional
details and the option of reserving the material (if the library allows it and the material is intended for loan purposes) are displayed.
The search results can be saved or shared with others. If the search results include an e-book that is available for loan, you are redirected to the e-book portal where you can reserve it.
INFORMATION ON LIBRARIES
Here you can see detailed information on libraries, such as the list of departments with addresses, opening hours, contact details of libraries and departments, display of library locations on the map and the option of calculating the route from your
current location to the selected library.
Once you enter your registration data for a specific library, the app is set for receiving push notifications. You can specify which push notifications you want to receive in the Membership tab shown on the home screen for each member individually.
SCANNING THE BARCODE
If books and journals are equipped with an ISBN or ISSN barcode, you can search for them by using your mobile device's camera to read the code. After that a search is performed in all libraries. The data on scanned books and journals is automatically
saved to My Shelf so that it can be used later if required.
Entries saved on My Shelf can be shared with others. You can add more shelves and name them as you see fit. All shelves are synchronized and visible in the web app COBISS+ https://plus.si.cobiss.net.
