Kommentare: Very fast retrospective conversion of 2000+ volume library. The ability to show to the administration what a valuable resource they had.
I've been a cataloguer at universities and large public library systems. When selecting software for a small special library I volunteered to catalog, this was by far the closest to the more sophisticated software I was used to using. Fully supports the MARC record, allows several holdings records attached to one bibliographic record, provides status reports that reflect the value of the collection. Barcode and spine label reports are easy to run. There are some tweaks I wish they'd add to the software, like being able to specify which fields to eliminate from the LC records as they are imported.
The status report has allowed the library to receive additional funding now. Previously there were just a bunch of old books on the shelves.
Our library supports a very large facility with offices in far flung buildings. The ability to browse the catalog from any cell phone or computer is stellar. Visibilty and accessibility are so important to boosting support for the library as well as use of this invaluable resource.
Nachteile: The price. Based on our size we were able to request a lower price. I think they should advertise that.

We've been a long user of LibraryWorld and found it to be a great value.
Vorteile: For the cost, you can't find many any other similar systems that offer online access and be as trouble free to operate as LibraryWorld.
Nachteile: The system does have it shortfalls in offering some reports, and cataloging nuances compared to the larger more expensive systems. And, yes many will call this a bare-bones product however, for smaller educational institutions and special libraries it just takes learning how to work within the system capabilities to make it shine.

Easy to use for the most part just needs better functionality for editing overdue items
Vorteile: That you can use many different catalogs when searching for a book, but that does not always work either.
Nachteile: The fact that it does not automatically update the student grade levels for the next school year and if a patron has a lot of items overdue and you want to say their items are all paid for or to forgive, you have to do one at a time, which is very time consuming!

This product does not automatically respond.
Kommentare: We have a rough idea of what our holdings are
Vorteile: It is fairly easy to negotiate the software even though the set up is old fashioned and does not offer as much flexibility as I would like.
Nachteile: Slow. Barcode scans usually have to be saved manually. There is no accurate total inventory. We frequently have to hunt down media that did not record. This is a rudimentary product

What you see is what you get
Our library used Library World for 7 years. During that time we repeatedly asked for added features that were not big changes but would have made life easier for us. They never made one change we asked them make. Technical support is almost nothing.
The reports that are listed in the program mostly do not work at all or are incorrect.
Patrons cannot reserve or renew books at home from OPAC, but they can see the catalog and search.
It has basic circulation features that are adequate. Cataloging is very time consuming compared to other library programs i have since used. You can download MARC records, but if you don't want all the fields you must delete them one by one.
Having said all that the one redeming feature is the price, it is only $400 a year (as of last year) and that is a good price for a very basic service.
