Library Pro’s administrative functions manage circulation, reports, patron management, serials and acquisitions.

Library 4

The [url=http://www.l4u.com/]Library 4 software package (L4U)[/url] from Kelowna Software bundles all the basic library functions --acquisitions, serials, cataloguing, circulation, and online public access -- in one, fully integrated, cross platform package.

The L4U Centralized Advanced Bookings Module purportedly offers librarians features and power previously only available for large college or university applications. Shipping lists, copy management, visual calendars, pick lists, authority control and automatic shipping labels are just a few of the standard features available in this module. Central Resource Centers allows you to specify shipping days, holiday management, and Globally Circulate records with the single click of a button.

It incorporates vendor records, prints purchase orders, generates claims, and automatically maintains budgets.

Scan in a bar code, and Readerware does the rest, searching the Internet and cataloging books, including cover art, in its SQL database. There's also an AW version for cataloging a CD collection and a VW version for cataloging a video collection.

SmartMARC

[url=http://www.smartmarc.com/]SmartMARC[/url] is a cross platform (Macintosh and Windows), industry-standard cataloguing tool used to locate full MARC records, update them, and save them directly into any library automation system that supports standard MARC/MicroLIF records.
