NCHU Library App


     We have developed an Android app that allows access to library services on mobile devices.

     The first version of the library app was released on April 17th, 2014. It allowed users to view the statuses of checked-out and requested library materials. It also gave notifications regarding due dates and arrivals of requested items. Additionally, it included an in-app renewal function, giving users a convenient means to renew items.

     A second version was released on November 24th, 2014. In addition to the original features, the new release allows users to search for library materials using keywords or ISBN barcodes. It also provides users with much more information, such as news items, new releases, popular books, library hours, and library floor plans.

     In order to support the Android system update, a third version of our NCHU Library App was released in December 2016. Some of the functions were adjusted in order to turn the App into a portable library.
