    Abstract

    This report follows the design and development of a mobile application that provides handheld-friendly access to the University of Portsmouth's Library Catalogue. The finished Android platform application provides functionality of the library catalogue web system: basic search, advanced search (as well as from the multiple media collections), provides information and location for the results and also features unique qualities such as book search by a barcode reader via the device camera. An iPhone port of the same functionality is started but unfinished due to time constraint. Without given access to the system, the functionality depends on screen-scraping information from the proprietary web system and approaches to this problem are discussed in detail.
