Health library software to suit your needs

Health libraries have a wide range of purposes and potential users. Depending on your needs, you may be setting up distribution lists for important journals, tracking library finances, or simply making sure important books are returned on time. Alternatively, you may just be carefully cataloguing a reference-only collection.

Whatever your requirements, with Simple Little Library System, you’ll only pay for what you need – and if that changes, the system can, too.

Whichever package you choose, you’ll get the easily accessed online catalogue, with straightforward searching and browsing. Our AutoCat tool will always be on hand to speed up your cataloguing by downloading data from reliable online sources, including Google and Library Hub Discover (formerly Copac).

Opt for the Sharing Package, and you’ll also benefit from a full range of tools to create and track loans and reservations, including fully customisable automated email alerts.

For those who need to keep on top of journals and other serial titles, our Expert Package is ideal. You’ll also be provided with the tools you need to monitor your library’s acquistions and finances.
