Library management software for architects and professional practices

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, architects and professional practices to manage print, digital and other resources. Trust our experience to deliver software that helps you manage your practice library while maintaining your users’ privacy.

Organise and enhance your professional library

Simple Little Library System isn’t just used for books. The software’s inherent flexibility means it can be adapted for all sorts of other media – even material and product samples. Ultimately, an architects’ materials library is still a library – there are items that need cataloging, 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 cataloging system, and all the tools you’ll need to create loans, track them, and communicate with library patrons.

Because SLLS is entirely web-based, your sales staff and customers can search your catalog and reserve items from anywhere – they just need an internet connection.

We save your time with automated cataloging from trusted sources

You can use AutoCat to download bibliographic details like title, author, edition and publisher for books straight into your catalog. 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 patrons can recognize your resources readily. Think of the time you can save!
