"Daily use in a small library"

What do you like best?

It's easy to operate. Self-cataloging into the system makes it easy to itemize the texts by course number and independent tags in the comments section.

What do you dislike?

Super simplistic design with limited input by the holding library. Home screen of "newly added titles" does little to help since it's 10 titles at a time and you have to scroll through pages of records. Search function is horrible -- does not accept misspellings, limited search terms, or ISBN numbers. Inventory reports are more complicated than they should be for such a small online repository.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previous records were housed in a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet -- this allows us to keep more accurate inventory counts and more in-depth cataloging records.

"Library World Review"

What do you like best?

I find the program to be very user friendly.

What do you dislike?

Recently we have had issues with Library World pulling up a different number than what is on the barcode. This could be a scanner issue, though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A very user friendly program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No business problems. It is a great program for our district to have across the board. It is also helpful that LMS has admistrative rights to assist us.

"As a circulation program, Library World is great."

What do you like best?

It is a good program for what it is needed for. It maintains accurate circulation records as well as financial responsibility for late returns. It is fast and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

I wish it gave me the ability to preset which parts of a Marc record I want to delete, so I wouldn't have to do it for every record. Also, when printing class records, they only print correctly using certain browsers. They aren't compatible with every browser.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this program for libraries because of it's ease of use and it's ability to maintain accurate records.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a school librarian that sees about 1100 children regularly. This program allows me to maintain accurate records without worry. Library World is also easy to use.
