App Allows Mobile Access to Library Catalog

AirPAC appThe Jefferson County Library Cooperative (JCLC) has launched a mobile version of its website that will allow users to easily access JCLC’s online catalog on mobile phones and other small-screen mobile devices. This app supports our continuing efforts to make library materials available to a wide range of audiences.

The mobile catalog can be accessed from our regular catalog from any smartphone. The catalog will automatically detect that you are on a smartphone and take you to the mobile version of the catalog (AirPAC). On your Internet capable mobile phone, go to our catalog http://vulcan.lib.al.us or http://m.vulcan.bham.lib.al.us/. It should automatically take you to the mobile version if you’re using a smartphone. Go to Mobile at the bottom of the website to view the mobile format that will appear on your phone.
