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

Library 4

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.

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

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.
