Organise and enhance your professional library

Simple Little Library System isn’t just used for books. The system’s inherent flexibility means it can be adapted for all sorts of other media – even material and product samples. Ultimately, a materials library is still a library – there are items that need cataloguing, auditing, and loaning to people. And SLLS makes it all straightforward, even for non-librarians.

Our Sharing Package is a popular choice for architects and other professionals. It features a comprehensive but user-friendly cataloguing system, and all the tools you’ll need to create loans, track them, and communicate with borrowers.

Because SLLS is entirely web-based, your sales staff and customers can search your catalogue and reserve items from anywhere – they just need an internet connection.
