Online catalogue for libraries in charities

As a charity, are you still paying too much for your library software?

If so, you’ll be looking for affordable library software that doesn’t compromise on quality.

Affordable and easy to use library software

If you’re running a charity library, our Sharing Package is the perfect choice. Your borrowers can search the user-friendly online catalogue from almost anywhere, place reservations, and even self-loan using the dedicated Check-In/Check-Out screen.

Meanwhile, our AutoCat tool will populate the records in your catalogue using just an ISBN,  by downloading data from several reliable online sources. Your latest acquisitions will be online and visible to your borrowers in no time.

Our reporting tools will let you track borrowers’ habits and keep on top of auditing your collection. What’s more, there are no set-up costs and no limitations on the number of library users. You can purchase additional titles or admin licences as and when required, giving you great flexibility to grow.
