Our library management system for small schools does not have any limitation. It includes all library features.
The price is based only on the installation license (1 PC or 5 PC's).
You can enter unlimited number of items and borrowers (some software companies limit their basic packages to 1000-2000 items).
All circulation transactions are supported: check in, check out, reservation, renew.
Our solution gives you full barcode support. You can print barcode labels. You can process check in/out with a barcode scanner (some library software vendors don't support loan rules in basic packages).
If you are not ready yet with a bar-coding technology our library supports manual processing.
All additional library modules are included: library search, library auto cataloguing, separate check in/out module. Extra modules let you assign library administration and management tasks to volunteers and users.
You can define loan rules: maximum number of items per user or item type, loan periods per user or item type, and fines (some library software publishers don't support loan rules in basic packages).
We appreciate and listen to your feedback and we use it to improve our application. New useful school library features. June 2017:
Comment: I am impressed with the simplicity and power of this software and the availability of training materials. Read reviews from small school libraries.
Do you accept purchase orders from School Districts?
Yes we process PO. You can send purchase order by email.
My question is if I pay the $304.95, it will be forever on my school computer or do I have to renew it every month, year?
It's a one time payment, and the software is on your compouter.
Does School Library manager work on a network? I mean how do we make catalgoue accessible for students? Is it a web based library application or client programme?
I am one librarian in an elementary school. I am the only person who would be accessing the program so do I need the 1 User license for $345 or do I need the School LIcense (network license) for $545? I'm not clear on what the difference is.
If you install the application on the network and use the program from the client compouters then you need network license. If you install the program on the server or on the client computer and will use the program from this computer you don't need the network license.
