The iMLS HD App allows staff, pupils and parents to access the school library from an iPad.
Schools using Junior Librarian.net or Eclipse.net (hosted) can now ensure the library and its resources are accessible anywhere, anytime and available to your whole school community. The app is a fantastic way to encourage parental engagement with reading.
Display the latest news from the library and showcase information such as the ‘Top Ten’, ‘New Arrivals’ ‘Latest Returns’ and ‘Book of the Week’.
Using the ‘Who Next’ feature, the app will automatically recommend new books based on your past loans.
Students can write or record video reviews about books, websites and other resources and books can also be reserved and renewed using the App.
Search the library catalogue using the iMLS HD quick search to find books and websites to help with homework or general research or for the latest book by your favourite author. You can even watch fantastic videos of authors talking about their books in their own words.
Parents can track borrowing patterns for children with access to current and past loans information.
The Community Stat’s feature allows you to check on the most popular books and authors across the MLS schools community.
Using the ‘ISBN Search’ feature you can also check whether your school library has a copy of a book before buying it online or in a book store. You can also recommend books for purchase by the school library.
Staff can also use the various tools to Catalogue, Issue & Return resources and perform a stock check. You can also use circulate with no internet connection and sync up any changes to your main library system when your internet connection is restored.
Currently only available if your school library uses Junior Librarian.net (primary) or Eclipse.net hosted (secondary). If you’re not sure, why not check with your school librarian.
You will need your user name, password and school postcode to log into the app. If you don't have these details or your school is not on hosted yet, you can try out iMLS HD by tapping the demo button on the login screen.
The new app is finally here! To download please search for "iMLS Student" in the Apple store.
The new iMLS Student app includes an updated and more engaging user interface as well as some exciting new features. Use your existing login details (ask your Librarian if you don’t have any) and try the new version including our new augmented reality feature. Look out for posters to scan around school...
We hope you enjoy the new version :)
Ratings and Reviews
Good but not everything works!
I installed MLS in our school library over two and a half years ago and I still can't get the app to work properly. I can see which books are available but some of the options don't work due to a data download fail. I have contacted MLS twice and they say they are working on it. It's a shame to pay so much in licence fees and not be able use the app to its full extend. I can't promote this app to parents because it still doesn't work properly.
WOW PERFECT INCREDIBLE(awful) now I review my favourite books on the ills app all the time a life changing app 10/10 READING. It also helps me remember the number rule of the LRC only bottled water and NO BAG
A must for all schools
If you're a school and you value reading and the school library then you should have MLS as your management system. Then if you do you can have staff, pupils, parents etc download this app and start creating a reading community around your school.
The features are especially clever allowing pupils to reserve books from anywhere, see if a book is in the catalogue and even request it to purchased if it's not.
It has a clean, easy to navigate look about it and is even useful for the librarian to control information from their own device.
It takes reading out of the library and into everyone's pocket.
A great app!
