Booksource is proud to announce that The Washington Post has featured our app, "Classroom Organizer" on their Top 50 Apps for Teachers list. Listed under the top "Communication and Organization" apps, The Washington Post  describes our app a wonderful tool to use when managing your classroom library. A further descirption praises it for its ease in allowing books to be scanned and uploaded into your personal classroom-library database. This way, students can use the app or the website to check out and return books. (Strauss, 2015)

The Classroom Organizer iPhone app works in conjunction with Booksource's Classroom Organizer web application to allow educators to organize and track books in their classroom library. The app features barcode scanning functionality to eliminate the need to manually enter ISBN numbers for books. Our extensive database searches the scanned books to find the title of each book, again, eliminating the need to manually type this information.

The Classroom Organizer app is an affordable alternative to purchasing a typical USB scanner. With the Classroom Organizer app educators can simply walk around their classroom and scan each book via their iPhone or iPad2.

We've also included the ability to assign locations to books as they are added to a Classroom Organizer account. Simply create locations and choose a location before adding a book to your library. The selected location is maintained until a new selection is made. This allows for quick scanning of multiple books in a single location.

Check your progress as books are scanned by using the "Manage Classroom" function of the app. View the title, cover image (if available) as well as quantity of a title that has been added. Quickly find items by sorting books by title or quantity.
