With our present library management system not being able to fully support our needs in terms of search ability, ease of use, reliability and just overall management, I have been in contact with COMPanion Corporation, in order to learn more about their Alexandria Software, since I would like to implement it as our library management system.
Having used this system before, mainly for circulation, I can’t believe that I hadn’t thought about installing it here since its affordable, provides 24/7 support and is simply a gem in terms of usability for both the library staff and the client wanting to access library materials. Did I mention its affordable! Compared to other library systems or the new Library Service Platforms (LSPs), prices, it’s a drop in the bucket.
I have submitted its cost to our upcoming budget and I am really hoping that we could get the green light for this system since I am all for improving client experience. Would keep you guys posted on any other updates. Keep your fingers and toes crossed guys 🙂
