Library Experience 4.0 Always connected

Libraries provide relevant media literacy in our digitised and interconnected society. It's high time to elevate the user experience to the next level within the library. An app is just key.

Everywhere and anytime, quickly and discreetly

Mobile keeps your community connected with you around the clock. You couldn't meet current demands for intuitive design, advanced operation, and communication any better.

And with Hublet tablets, which your users can borrow themselves in the library, you significantly contribute to digital inclusion.

Always connected
Nex.App | My Library App

Found a favorite book, a much-loved music CD while browsing the retail shelves? Simply use your phone and borrow it from your library with two clicks using the Nex.App. Finished! Returning the item is just as easy. Information about events and news are provided at a glance. Twitter is also integrated. This is what our smartphone society wants. But the app can do even more: digital and physical stock are listed in an overview and are available for download for iOS and Android users.

Of course, it can send push notifications for due dates, has a digital library card, stores reservations and is ideal for families as all accounts can be managed in one app.

And watch out! With the Nex.app, ISBN numbers can be scanned to find out whether the bestseller that has just been published is already available in the library and can be reserved immediately.

  • Familiar smartphone operation
  • Item loan and return at the shelf
  • Account management anywhere, anytime

This is what I need!

Of course, the app is available in more than 30 languages and also works for left-handed fonts.

Browse with Hublet at your favourite place
Digital inclusion

Scan the library card, take the tablet out of the dock and off you go. For hours, you can browse eBooks or eMagazines, stream movies, surf the Internet or play games at your favourite place. Digital content for everyone! A huge variety of different apps from the Google Play Store offer a wide selection of education and fun according to the needs of your community and your eContent offerings.

User profiles can be defined in advance for children, adults or entire groups, depending on specific target group and use. The usage history is deleted in accordance with data protection regulations when the tablet is returned to the dock, where it is safely stored and recharged for the next visitor.
