Resource Sharing – Without Compromise
We have extensive experience delivering libraries with the capacity to share resources, patrons, purchasing and services as much – or as little as they like – without any sacrifice to their autonomy.
LIBERO’s unique Service Point feature allows different libraries to group multiple branches or catalogues into a single point of search and access for members. This enables a library to simplify access to sharing items between different libraries and branches via the WebOPAC.
LIBERO UNION System
LIBERO’s Union System allows libraries to selectively share Members and resources between libraries or branches.
A Union database provides access to shared records, materials status and member records between any number of libraries. Each local catalogue meanwhile, remains completely independent, providing consortia members all the efficiencies of a consortium with no sacrifice to control over their own circulation policies, tags, the WebOPAC and local system customisations.
LIBERO offers Powerful budgeting and cost-centre control, a customisable WebOPAC, superior multi-branch functionality, Z39.50 portal, webServices API, parameterisation system-wide, integrated Regional Databases, integrated Discovery Platform and advanced Interlibrary Loan services.
LIBERO currently supports a range of different regional library service, regional organisation of councils (ROCs), and co-operatives between other libraries and organisations.
