More functionality available with OCLC's Digby® app!

The Digby mobile app has helped libraries' student workers, volunteers, and staff manage common library tasks like handling pull lists and reshelving more efficiently. Additionally, a Digby-enabled device can help your library conduct a basic inventory. Digby's inventory feature includes exception recognition for items on hold, etc., an inventory items report, and support for Bluetooth laser scanners.

More recently, we added a check-in feature. Your workers now can scan items’ barcodes to check in items, clear Missing and Lost statuses, and route items to the circulation desk to fulfill holds or transit to another location. They also can view a list of checked-in items sorted by call number or the order they were checked in.
