at fivebranches university we use libraryworld. net, an internet based software provider.
the system is adequate for cateloging, serials and circulations modules, has limited report capability(we have the low end price at 365 per year). more expensive versions have more report facility. other libraries are using a more expensive system called cyberworld.. you can look at both of these systems by googling these system terms.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my question! I really appreciate
it and there were many good ideas!
I think for the present, I shall continue to let Alumni use the
Library, but not be able to check out materials, since our Library is
small and we
would run the risk of losing materials and not be able to
replace them. The final decision will be decided by our Library
Committee, but this would be my recommendation.
I have one more question for you. I am in the process of deciding
which Library Software system would be best for us at Emperors. We
have about 3,000 items in our collection, some AVs, and I've been
looking at LibraryWorld and Cybertools. I'm not sure if I can justify
the expense of Cybertools right now, although I do like it very much.
Which system would be the best to have, if we have a Union Catalog
together eventually? Also, is there a Security system that you could
recommend that might complement one of the Library software systems.
Thanks for all of your wonderful advice!
