StackMap™ is a solution that provides patrons with a detailed map and written directions to an item in one click, without ever leaving the catalog. When patrons find a book in the online catalog, they have only a call number to guide them to their book. StackMap™ is a web-based software solution to provide patrons with a detailed map and written directions to an item in one click, without ever leaving the catalog.
All libraries, from large academic libraries with many floors of stacks to small public libraries, can help their patrons find items more easily. In simplifying the process from curiosity to holding a book, StackMap™ can save time for both patrons and library staff.
Libraries who already have the service will also have the option to use it in their mobile apps when signing up with Capira Technologies for their mobile patron service. By leveraging the StackMap™ set of web APIs, Capira Technologies mobile apps will now provide the capability to display the visual mapping layout of where an item resides inside the library when users search the catalog. Additionally, the app will automatically zoom to the location of the item selected on the graphical mapping, allowing patrons to easily find where their item is located.
