What’s an App? App is short for application. Apps are tools that you can use on your computer or handheld device to search for information, read a book or learn something new, like a language–the same things people have done in physical libraries for generations.
All apps should work in your computer or device’s browser. Some may require an additional free download from the app store for optimal use on a particular device.
Click on any of the following application buttons to access the services they offer (or contact a reference librarian at 906/226-4312 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more):
