Kommentare: I used Follett's Destiny, in another school district, and I also have many years experience working in public libraries. I have to say that I much prefer Alexandria to Destiny. I wasn't a fan of Destiny. I didn't like the small fonts used, and in a lot of ways it wasn't customer friendly. It is as good, if not better than circulation programs I've used in public libraries. The thing I really appreciate about Alexandria, other than the fact that it is a great system, is their AMAZING tech support! When I've needed something, they've helped me every step of the way. They have assisted me many times, and have gone above and beyond to make sure that I'm successful using Alexandria.

Vorteile: Everything on Alexandria is very quick, and it is so easy to use. The size of the fonts for names/titles when checking students' books out, and checking them in is large, so reading glasses aren't needed. Multiple reports are available, and you can also import/export when downloading new students' info, which means it takes only minutes to add new classes to the system, instead of typing in information. Additionally, I love that the scanning of titles and student barcodes is so fast. Everything scans the first time in a nano second!

Nachteile: Nothing at all! It is a great system and I can't think of anything I'd suggest be changed.

Kommentare: Recently we added classroom collections of all of our English department teachers. This should have been done as the books were added over the years, but it was not. Our teachers were quite reluctant to have to learn new software and all, but now that it's done they think it's pretty slick! They love that they can find a title in another classroom if they don't have a copy themselves.

Vorteile: Alexandria offers so many things. It's a great way to organize our collection and know immediately whether we have an item, where it is, and whether it's available. I can fine-tune reports so I can zero in on exactly what I need to know. I can personalize fields and settings, and I can set permissions to restrict how much information others in our building can access or edit. Tech support is top notch! They address my questions and concerns with clarity and with respect, even when I feel I may have a silly question. I've learned much about Alexandria by calling tech support with a few questions and then hearing them explain a better way to do what I'm trying to do.

Nachteile: Maybe a con is that Alexandria is capable of doing so much that I am not even aware of.

Kommentare: My experience has been great. The program is reliable and consistent. I love the organization of it and appreciate the willingness of the company to constantly be making improvements and updates. It's a great software program.

Vorteile: We just upgraded to Version 7 and I appreciate how seamless and easy the conversion was. The program is so user friendly and nine times out of ten, I can "play" around with things and find exactly what I need. Any time I have an issue and have contacted technical support, they have responded immediately. The other thing I love about Alexandria is their willingness to take the suggestions from the user to improve the operations. I think it is a great program and I hope we always have it in my library.

Nachteile: This is a very trivial con, but I wish that version 7 gave us the ability to add a picture to the generic patron image. I know they are working on it, but my kids loved seeing the seasonal images I would put up for them. I was having trouble with the holds, but after talking to our tech support, it was fixed.

Fine if you START with version 7, upgrading is a different story...

Kommentare: I love working with Alexandria. The support is phenomenal. True, I've had to call in quite a bit --esp. last school year, when I upgraded. But despite the frustrations with my laptop running the program, it was wonderful to quickly connect with a helpful and positive support person.

Vorteile: I've been using this software for 12 years. For all of this time, I've enjoyed the intuitive nature of the program, esp. when it comes to running reports. This is also a very easy program for cataloging. I use Dewey, and I often have to keep an OCLC tab open for finding the call number. Sometimes it populates with it, depends on the record.

Nachteile: My least favorite aspect of version seven is the way I generate reports like spine and barcode labels. I'm finding it fussy and time-consuming. There are good tutorials, however, it's just that time is always short when working in a busy environment like an elementary school.

Kommentare: I have used Alexandria in several forms for over 20 years. I am very pleased with the program and all the updates I have gone through.

Vorteile: The thing I like most about this software is the ease of doing reports, and adding books to my inventory.

Nachteile: The thing I like least is trying to find out answers on line. I am not a native computer person so the language is hard for me to understand. But the support is awesome, I just need to call for help instead of spending hours trying to figure it out on my own.
