BiblioBoard (@BiblioBoard) is an award-winning app and web ecosystem that helps libraries and institutions create and distribute multimedia anthologies and exhibits from their catalogs and special collections. BiblioLabs–the Charleston, SC, team of 25 software engineers, historians, editors, marketers and community managers–developed the technology behind BiblioBoard, taking advantage of the prevalence of today?s high-speed connections.
Specifically, the BiblioBoard app gives users the ability to access hundreds of ?Anthologies,? which are curated collections of books, images, documents, artifacts, ephemera, sounds and video related to a specific theme. This brand-new multimedia experience is built around high-resolution primary source historical content and a growing library of contemporary publisher content. Users can access BiblioBoard Anthologies on a broadband web browser, or on the award winning native apps for iPad, Kindle Fire HD, Nexus 7, or Galaxy Tab. This innovative technology is being integrated into thousands of libraries and schools around the world to allow patrons free access to this trove of information.
In the past, these rare documents and photos would only be accessible by visiting a library in person. But now, thanks to BiblioBoard?s innovative use of high-speed internet technology, anyone can browse these wondrous artifacts in the palm of their hand.
