Library management software for architects and professional practices

Find out why Bailey Solutions is the leading library software supplier for corporate and professional libraries

We were the first to offer library software for legal libraries using Microsoft development tools, and we have been providing library software since the 1990s to help accountants, law firms, and professional practices to manage print, digital and other resources. Trust our experience to deliver GDPR-ready software that helps you manage your practice library.

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.

Under resourced?

We save your time with automated cataloguing from legal sources

You can use AutoCat to download bibliographic details like title, author, edition and publisher for books straight into your catalogue. Our sources include Google Books, Wildy’s and Library Hub Discover (formerly Copac). 

AutoCat automatically creates one copy located in your usual library space. It also adds the front book cover image so library users can recognise your resources readily. Think of the time you can save!
