The era of clunky laminated museum passes that need to be checked out and returned to the library is coming to a close, and we can't say we're sad to see them go! While some Museums, Zoos, and other cultural institutions are providing paper tickets for their library partners, others are offering eTicketing options so patrons can reserve, check out, and print museum passes from home.
While expanded options are exciting, they also present a new challenge for libraries: managing both physical Tickets and printable eTickets in one place. The LibCal Museum Pass and eTicketing module offers a flexible tool that allows for both physical Tickets picked up at the library and eTickets delivered directly to your patron's inbox.
This new LibCal Museum & Passes eTickets functionality combined with the existing Equipment Booking module creates a robust Lending Hub where you can:
We know that ease of use is a top priority, so we've developed a highly visual booking module that allows patrons to browse by museum/institution or date of pass availability.
While managing a museum pass program may sound simple, we know that every museum has different guidelines, and relationships vary from library to library. There may be specific instructions for one museum that are totally different for another, or outside funding sources like Trustees or Friends groups that need to be mentioned at the museum level.
