1 A presentation and proposal for the member libraries of Nassau Library System in Uniondale, New York for a customized mobile application from Capira Technologies, LLC. Overview This presentation will provide the member libraries of the Nassau Library System with an overview of proposed functionality and design for a custom built consortium mobile application. Contents Include: Sample application launcher icons Proposed functionality and description of each application menu
2 Application Launcher Icon The application launcher icon is found on the springboard and applications menus of Apple and Android devices. The following launcher icons are proposed samples based on feedback from the NLS Goods and Services Committee. Graphical Design When a user first downloads and runs the NPLM Mobile application on their device, they will be prompted on the first screen to choose their home library. Choosing their home library will cause the application visuals to change predefined resources for that specific library including background color, banner image, and toolbar colors. There will be approximately 9 different color themes for member libraries to choose from as their specific app theme.
3 Menu Overview The NPLM Mobile application contain the following menus: Choose Your Library First Time Setup Main Menu Search the Catalog Search Collection / Find Movies / Find Audiobooks / Find Childrens Books / Find Video Games Scan ISBN My Account Programs & Events Online Services Museum Passes Research Library Information Connect With Us Some of these menus will be nested inside others. For example, Search Collection is a child menu of Search the Catalog. Choose Your Library
4 Choose Your Library When a user first downloads and runs the NPLM Mobile application on their device, they will be prompted on the first screen to choose their home library. Choosing their home library will cause the application visuals to change predefined resources for that specific library including background color, banner image, and toolbar colors. An I don t know my home library link will be provided for users who may not have a library card and are unsure to which library they may belong. This will link to a page hosted on Nassau-e with information about finding which library a patron may belong to. There is a generic NPLM theme which will be used for this menu since the user has not yet picked their home library. First Time Setup
5 First Time Setup After a user chooses their home library, the remaining application menus will change their visuals based on the theme colors chosen by the library, and that library s banner image. On this menu, patrons can provide their barcode and PIN to verify their library record information. This process uses the PATRONAPI for authentication. If a member library is standalone, the app server will forward the request to the appropriate ILS for authentication. If a user authenticates successfully, they can access advanced app functionality such as Digital Library Card and Check Notifications. Users who do not have a library card, or who do not want to fill this out have the option to Skip this screen and go to the main menu. Notes: Users can access this screen at any time in the future under the My Account menu and selecting Set Up Mobile Account A Please call us if you have problems message is displayed at the bottom. The phone number provided will change based on the library selected. Main Menu
6 Main Menu The Main Menu is the screen which is displayed after a user has chosen their home library and completed/skipped the First Time Setup.

The Theme and Colors will already be set based on the users choice of Home Library, they will not have to choose again each time they use the app. Museum Passes button will push users to a page on the chosen library website with information about reserving museum passes.
