[Objective] This study develops an APP for the academic library based on the mobile campus platform, which helps patrons obtain library information and services conveniently, and then expands the services remarkably. [Context] With the progress of smart-campus technologies, higher education institutes started to build their own mobile campus platforms. However, few libraries utilized this new platform to serve their readers. [Methods] The proposed APP opened interface and interface expansion of the existing library system to provide library services to the mobile patrons, with the help of the Whistle platform. [Results] The proposed APP established a mobile library for the users . It could authenticate library patrons, search/check-out library collection, build personalized library, post announcements and send out information. [Conclusions] Developing library APPs based on the mobile campus platform (i.e. Whistle) mirrors the latest developments of higher education institutions. Academic libraries could become leading players in this field.
