Find Books, Not Call Numbers

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.
