Focus Librarian – Software for Librarians

Product overview: 

Focus Librarian enables you to catalogue everything in your Library or Resource Centre.  This may include books, periodicals, videos, audio tapes, CD’s, DVD’s and any other form of media. Designed specifically as a software for librarians, it provides administration staff with the right set of tools to manage borrowed items and to ensure that these are returned on time. Registration of members is also supported, including full personal and contact details. Lending rules and fines can be set up depending on the classification or popularity of the items in question and the attributes of the borrower.

 The system’s main aim is to help you: 

Item acquisition and registration with full details of author, publisher, subject, Dewey Decimal Classification and an indefinite number of key words. A variety of images including front cover and table of contents are also optionally supported. Printing of bar-coded labels is also provided.
