I'm new to this list so forgive me if this subject has already been
I'm looking for a software which will be able to manage the exchange
activities in our library. We have an extensive and lively exchange with
numerous libraries and other institutions. We would like to keep evidence
and draw statistics from the data about WHO sent WHAT and WHEN to us and
vice versa, that means that we would like to have a database system which
would allow us to make queries according to a combination of different
paramaters, such as "what did we receive from this institution last year?"
or " who did we send that publication to?" or "from which country did we
receive the most books?" etc.
Besides, we would like to have the exchange system integrated within the
whole of the library acquisition system, which would allow us to keep
up-to-date track of the library holdings, including our own publishing
production, how many books we sold, how many gave away as presents etc.
(Cataloguing and classification is done in the existing, separate system.)
Does anybody have satisfying experience with some system that would suit
