“What’s great about SLLS is my Admin Dashboard. As soon as I login I can see exactly what I need to do, catalogue corrections, overdue orders or serial parts updates. Because I work part-time this legal library software is such a time saver for me. It is also very reassuring when faced with those unexpected queries about new acquisitions or new editions, I can answer quickly and confidently from that one screen that orders have been made or we are up to date.”

Julie Keys, Legal Information Manager at Fox Williams

Which legal library software package will suit your requirements?

Legal libraries vary greatly in their scope, operations, and needs. Some legal librarians simply need to accurately audit and efficiently organise their collections. Others need to monitor loans, and many are also required to create distribution lists, monitor subscriptions to periodicals and journals, and track finances. With Simple Little Library System, you only pay for what you need.

“We migrated to SLLS last year. The transition was smooth and we had a good response to the few ‘tweaks’ needed. The new product is very clear and well laid out, so training lawyers is easy, as the layout is now so like other main databases they use. The check-in/check-out facility works well. The Admin function is also pretty clear – and where it isn’t, a call or email to Bailey’s is answered promptly. I have also used the short training videos and they are clear and useful.”

Anne Storey, Library Officer at Sackers
