We have a standalone library computer for our HOA and would like to be able to provide your Handy Library Manager on-line catalogue to all residents at no charge. Is this possible? What requirements do you need for the computer?
Unless your stand-alone computer is a web server you will not be able to provide an online catalog yourself. If you send us a backup of your database we can create a free account for you on our server (you will receive a link to your online catalog).
Question: Is there a way to link the database to the church website so that searches (eg. author, title, subject) can be done online?
The above topic explians how to set library web search.
Question: With Handy is there a way for patrons to access our library catalog online?
Ask you IT personnel if you computer supports running a web application.
Question: I work at a Museum that is researching library database software for our print collection. I see that you offer an OPAC? Can you tell me more about how a library database can be web searchable using your software?
Please review with your IT personnel if your computer supports: the computer needs a static IP address and supports access from the web or network computers.
Question: Church Library; Our church has the software installed on a standalone PC. I have been asked by the librarian if it is possible allow church members to access the library catalogue from the web to allow people to look things up at home. It looks like you have some products that might meet our needs but I am not sure by just reading the descriptions which product would be best. I would like to talk to someone who to steer us in the right direction. Church has a dedicated server but the library software currently runs on a standalone machine.
If the library system is installed on the dedicated server it will support our Web Search feature. Church members will have access to the library catalogue from the web at home.
Question: How to provide free Library Catalogue Web Search. Please let me know the additional charges for this service.
There is not extra cost for the web search.
Your documentation says that the Desktop Search is accessible to patrons without accessing the library admin module. Does that mean patrons can access the desktop search via a link if the HLM application is installed on a network server?
