Please review the following questions and answers from correctional institution libraries:

Question: The software will be installed in a prison and there is controlled Internet access. We need a library system that is working without the web access.

Our software requires only a desktop computer with Windows or Windows Server operating system to support all book and borrower management features.


Question: We are a prison library using our own barcode identification for our book inventory and the publisher's barcode. We are doing all data entry manually. Could we implement our barcode identification numbers?

Manual data entry is supported. Custom bar code values are supported.


Question: Our correctional institution has limited funds. Do you offer discounts for your library system?

There is very affordable non-profit license. Unlimited use and installation costs only $200 extra. With the purchase of the library system you receive free license for our Handy Equipment-Tool Manager for Windows.


Question: Do you accept purchase orders for your library system? We are not allowed to make orders on the web, is it possible to send you a check?

Yes, we accept purchase orders and payments by checks or bank transfers.


Question: Data entry forms and views offer too much data. There are many fields that we don't need, since we are a prison library. For example we don't use city, state, zip code, email, etc. Can I simplify book and borrower information?

You can customize data entry forms, how to modify entry forms for prison reading or other materials. Data display panels offer information in the form of html documents that support high customization flexibility.


Question: In our correctional facility we don't want everyone to have access to the main library application. Could we set a password access or define security levels?

You can set login names and password to all modules: main application, search (OPAC), check in/out, or data entry modules. Please review set your library options.
