Library SimpIified

ACQUISITION

We understand the challenges librarians face in managing multi-location libraries. With LibSys7,

multi-location libraries having centralized procurement can perform hassle free operations like centralized ordering and invoice processing with flexibility for location-wise receiving. Online indenting and approval simplifies the process.

CATALOGUING

The Cataloguer gets a new powerful tool

‘Net Cataloguing’ that allows searching of catalogues of other libraries having Z39.50/ SRU-SRW/ OAI-PMH/ Libsys databases. Retrieved MARC 21/ MARC-XML records can be edited and downloaded into Libsys7. Cataloguer works on a flexible MARC21 interface that provides quick-tips as well as in-depth online ‘Help’ to make the task easy. User defined iReports or AACR2 Cards provides the much desired flexibility and localization to the library.

CIRCULATION

Libsys7 ouers a new level of circulation through integration  with  Biometric  or  RFID  technology.  Besides the regular  email  reminders  to  patrons, options are available for instant SMS alerts and emails. Patrons can perform self reservation and self renewal. Support  for  multi-location  circulation   through location based checks and validations.

SERIALS

LibSys7 builds upon the widely appreciated functional depth of serials control of earlier versions with the inclusion of MARC21 interfaces. Handling of online journals to meet changing subscription pattern of the libraries. Option to scan  the  cover  and  contents  page of physical  journals  for  publishing  in  OPAC. Compliance to SICI-Barcode standard.

Reach Out

Web-OPAC

A contemporary and user friendly OPAC inspired by Web/Lib 2.0 philosophy that emphasizes on meeting the needs and aspirations of the Users rather than just feeding information. Like, a suggestion list assists the user in building a search strategy. Patrons get comprehensive information through Table of Contents, Summary, Annotations, Authors Notes which can be further expanded through search links to ‘Google’, ‘WorldCat’, ‘BookFinder’ and ‘Google Scholar’.

 

‘Shelf Browse’ provides the patrons a window to peek on titles available on shelf, nearby the searched book, which definitely enhances their online library experience.

LibSys7 encourages patrons to be more participative through sharing reviews/ ratings on titles, emailing or downloading information.
