The iMLS App allows staff, pupils and parents to access the school library from iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
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 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 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 :)

Oh Hell No😡
This app DOES NOT work on iPad like if you are going to make an app let you type things. You are better off online because it doesn't let you right and it's small I give pls don't give me a hard time because of this I'm just salty and I DON'T like this app. Well I get the point but it doesn't work for mwa.
Like all of the features! But...
I really like all of the options and features in this app. I love the way you can reserve books and write reviews. Also, I like the way you can click on 'who next' and see which authors the app recommends, according to your previous rentals. You can also message or email these recommendations to friends to share your ideas.
It's really good how this system is linked to my school library and I can see whether a resource is in the library or not. You can also scan barcodes to confirm whether your library has purchased this book.
The negative thing that I've discovered after using this application for 1 -1/2 weeks, is that it quite often take a while to load, and / or freezes and crashes. This is normal for a lot of apps, but is just annoying and could be considered in the next update.
Easy to use, app and an improvement to our old, walk up to the desk and get it scanned library system.
I love this app! It is easy to use and very intuitive. Students are now able to search the library catalogue online to help with their research even when they are not in the library. They can also write reviews on their phones and check which books they have out. My students love it!
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
