Brodart Automation completes forty-five new Amlib installations

Press Release: Brodart, Inc. [April 19, 2001]

Since July 2000 libraries all over the country have successfully installed Amlib, Brodart Automation's new Library Management System, and even more are waiting to have their systems installed. Amlib now has over 200 installations worldwide.

This success is due in part to Amlib's comprehensiveness, ease of use, and extreme flexibility in configuration options. Amlib's features include Acquisitions, Authority Control, Report Generator, OPAC, Item Maintenance, Internet Catalog, Inter-library Loan, Serials, Self-Checkout, Community Information and Facility Booking, to name a few. Combined with its sound history in the field, these features make Amlib not only attractive, but affordable.

"The ease of the conversion to the new system surprised me. Amlib is providing our library with abilities that I thought only large libraries could have," said Leah Green, Director of the Dubois Public Library, Brodart Automation's first Amlib installation.

Sharon K. Thomas, Director, Blossburg Memorial Library, PA says, "We had looked at other automation systems and we felt that the Amlib System was the easiest to run and it offered more product with many features that the other systems either didn't have or were too pricey for a small town library."

"The quality ... has been way over and above anything we had expected or previously experienced. We feel we had been driving an Edsel and have now been given a Mercedes." Anne Rogers, Director, Paris-Bourbon County Public Library, KY

Recent installations include the Norristown School District, an eleven-site union installation, and the Pottsville Free PL, PA, with a database of over 100,000 records.

From Amlib's inaugural success, installation has continued steadily all over the country in both school and public libraries:
