Mobile Access to PINES

The PINES App

There is a PINES app for Android devices available through the Google Play store - just search for "Georgia PINES". We are in the planning stages for an iPhone app as well.

 

Mobile Site

The PINES catalog has been optimized for use on most smartphones and mobile devices. Rather than requiring you to download and install an app, simply open your phone's web browser and go to gapines.org. The site will recognize that your screen is smaller than normal and adjust itself automatically to display better on your screen. You will be able to search for books, access your account, place holds, and more, just like you can do from a computer.
