iPhone App for WorldCat!

WorldCat is a combined library catalog that helps you to "find items in libraries near you."
Let's say you are looking for a copy of Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol. Type the title into the WorldCat search box, select the edition you want and then type in your zip code.
Instantly, you'll find all the libraries near that zip code that own the book (including Roselle Public Library). Click on the library name to link to its catalog to see if the book is on the shelf or checked out.
The WorldCat entry also includes links to buy the book, details about the edition, reviews, tags and more.
It's been available on your PC for a while (and on the Library's Facebook page!), and now it has its own iPhone app! You can also locate, map the route, and place a call to a library directly from the app. Users of other devices can access WorldCat Mobile through their device's web browser.
Think about the possibilities!
