The SHARE E-Resources Committee, SHARE Finance & Policy Committee, and SHARE Executive Council have all recommended moving forward with Solus, to build a mobile app for SHARE. The app will allow patrons to access the online cataloging, library account, and e-resources directly from the app.
Why do we need a mobile app? Please see the Solus App for SHARE Fact Sheet for background, why we need an app, and FAQs.
Will my fees increase? The SHARE Finance & Policy Committee has proposed using our Reserve Fund for three years. At the end of that time period, the committee will re-evaluate SHARE fees in total, but they also propose a cap on any additional cost for the app to less than $100 per library agency. Why? SHARE committees believe that this is what our patrons both need and expect.
Please review the fact sheet, demo and/or video before the member vote on May 12, 2021.
