Online catalog for community and charity libraries

As a community or charity library, 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 community or charity library, our Sharing Package is the perfect choice. Your borrowers can search the user-friendly online catalog 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 catalog 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.

“As a small retirement Village Library, we had some doubts about going digital but
we need not have worried. I
mplementing the system was surprisingly easy despite having 2,500 books to put the unique bar codes on. The technical support has been excellent with no question too simple or difficult and a very quick response. We recommend SLLS for anyone thinking about it the free trial convinced us as it enabled us to see if we were capable of implementing a digital library.”
