About collectionHQ

collectionHQ is an evidence-based, performance management tool that helps libraries align their collections with patron demand. collectionHQ's tools help staff monitor popular demand by subject categories, authors that are rising or falling in popularity and titles that will circulate better if moved to another branch or area of the library. This ensures patrons are satisfied, and will return to the library again and again.

Using collectionHQ's powerful tool set, librarians can quickly perform tasks that used to take weeks or months. From rapidly identifying missing items, to locating and removing slow-moving or grubby materials,

collectionHQ eases workloads and frees up staff time to work on other important areas within the library.
