" We currently have about 12,000 books in our system, and we also have audio
books and DVDs. We are hoping that our library will continue to grow as we get
more books donated to us ... We have also found that the customer service is very quick, thorough and
friendly, willing to help out with any queries we may have. "
Academia La Providencia, Katharine M.,
" We particularly liked the reporting function to determine
who had music outstanding at the end of a concert season."
Monash University Choral Society, Alex L.,
" Currently there was a need for recording books with Arabic titles for a small community college (with about 75 students) which is part of the school. This is why we needed the Handy Library Software."
Talitha Kumi School Library, Nader,
"We're very happy how our library is organized and how it runs with your software! "
Bilingual school in Chihuahua, Mexico,
"We selected Handy Tool Manager because it provides all of the features of programs that are written specifically for Access Stations but at a much more affordable price a big concern for a non-profit like ours. One staff member administers the program and the Check In/Out process is done by one of four staff members using a barcode scanner."

"We also have an undergraduate and graduate program that utilize works in other languages, your new software supports Unicode, which will enable to use it with some of our other libraries that contain texts in other languages. (approximately 20,000 audio recordings and 50,000 religious works in other languages). "
Israel Henry Beren High School Library,
"I am a middle school teacher running a small middle school library. I am often not available to check books out for students since I also teach. So students need to be able to easily check books out independently. "
An Aspire Public School,
"Most of the local IT companies don't have similar types of software that is readily available, thus customisation will cost thousands of dollars. I have just had a brief look through the content of the features, and I must say that it is very appealing. "
Fiji Higher Education Commission, Frentina A.
"I provide IT work for a state prison. Our inmates have a library that houses approximately 8000 books. Our state has tried several open-source library database manager programs in the past, but they have been cumbersome, buggy, and easily broken."
Wyoming Honor Farm, Lee (IT) ,
"... I am very pleased with our choice of HLM! It does everything I need it to do, our volunteers are able to easily check books in and out and the technical support when I've had questions has been great. "
" ... I found that lookup (and download) the book information from Library of Congress by just scanning the UPC barcode, is a great time-saver. "
Chesterfield Kumon Center,
" ... I am very happy with the Handy Library Manager. It has made our life so much easier and the handling of our materials faster and more efficient."
Freedom Declared Ministries, Inc.,
" ... My main reason for buying software from Primasoft was the price was right, and the software had all the required features. "
Lakeview Quilters Guild,
"To be honest, I initially thought the PrimaSoft Handy Library Manager seemed too good to be true. The price was very reasonable and competitive, especially given all the features it offers."
Lake Shore Drive Church of Christ,
"... We're confident that we have a system that will meet our needs for years to come. "
Spanish Springs Presbyterian Church Library,
"... And the feature-rich software and ease of use were top notch. "
" ... As a former public school-, college- and public librarian, I have worked with a few large library automation systems. And at this point I have no complaints about this program's capabilities and the support you offer."
Grace United Methodist Church,
"We chose this program primarily because of the reasonable price. "
Olivet New Church and School,
"... Handy is very affordable compared with other options, most of them designed for much larger libraries, with features we would never use ..."
White Plains United Methodist Church Library,
" My experience with this software has been great so far. I'm really glad that I purchased this software and I highly recommend it to any librarians as this would be a great program for anyone to use, even beginners. "
