We use the online registration form with a welcome email trigger.  When staff 
process online applications, new card holders get a welcome email with their 
card number so that they can start using online resources. The physical card 
arrives a few days later via snail mail.  It's not instant, but it's fairly 
quick.

It’s not quite instant, but the South Carolina State Library uses the online 
registration form<http://www.statelibrary.sc.gov/get-library-card> to allow 
almost-but-not-quite instant access to our electronic resources (includes 
things like ebrary and Safari collections).  That was the reason we chose to 
implement the remote registration:  to be able to grant access to users across 
the state as quickly and seamlessly as possible.  Circulation staff monitor the 
pending patrons screen and are able to approve users quickly.  These users 
could be routed into an internet-access permission group.

I’m not sure if that answers your question, but it’s a workflow that functions 
well for us.

Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] online registration and mobile app

Good afternoon -

We are interested in online registration that would allow patrons to use their 
accounts instantly to check out online resources. Is that ever going to be 
possible with Evergreen?

We would also like to have a mobile app for our catalog. Will that be possible 
in the future?

Thank you.
