ConverSight LIBRO is the first full-service library app that integrates with public and university libraries’ ILS systems, events calendar and other operating information systems allowing users to search for information through typed chat and voice. The solution plays a critical role in enabling students and patrons to access materials and resources from their library through simple voice commands on a mobile device, tablet or desktop computer -- matching similar voice-first experiences many of us have in our homes with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Siri.
LIBRO provides a simple, patron-facing user interface that does not require training for use. The user simply asks a question through voice or text and the app conducts a thorough database search. Text chat and visuals allow for a deeper search – empowering the user to ask more complicated questions like catalog searches by title, author, or genre and view results with visuals including book cover art.
LIBRO is ADA Compliant, empowering sight-impaired users with voice interaction. Additional features of the app include the ability to:
- Search for books, articles and materials
- Place materials on hold, reserve and renew
- Learn about upcoming library events
- Reserve space for programs, meeting rooms and events
- Access answers to frequently asked questions like library’s operating hours and policies
