Would you like to do some remote learning while libraries are social distancing? Now is a perfect time to learn more about Leap, Polaris’ Web Application. Leap is a responsive web client that brings the power and functionality of the Polaris ILS (Integrated Library System) to library staff through a browser.
Leap has several benefits, the least of which is the accessibility while offsite. It is intuitive, making it easy to learn and use. It takes the best functionality of the Polaris staff client, but presents it in a much more streamlined way. This makes it a great tool for day-to-day workflows.
In addition to the ease of use, Polaris is all web-based. This makes it an excellent solution for offsite or outreach activities. It also takes much less bandwidth than the traditional staff client, so it is an excellent tool for your library during peak usage. Learn more about Leap today! Please go to the SHARE training portal, login with your Polaris username and password, and access a series of tutorials on using Leap.
