What are the special features in Cataloguing module?

One page catalogue

You were earlier having one page accession register (book). Going from there, we have one page accession register with about 50 most used fields. And if you need more, you have the choice of doing cataloguing of all additional fields also. 

Direct Connection to Common Catalogue

Easylib comes with direct connection to common catalogue / union catalogue. You do not have to download the records in MARC and then import. It is pretty simple and straight forward. 

Link books to non books

You got CDs, Videos, Manuals, Thesis etc etc for a certain material in library. In Easylib, you can link all of them, so that user gets one unified view of collection in the library for the specific book he is looking for. 

Customizable Reports

Easylib comes with easy to build customizable reports. You build your search criteria, run the report, chose the fields you wish, order the way you want, chose the output format (excel, html, pdf),  chose the length of each, give your own title to the report and then get the report. Pretty powerful. 

Customizable Statistics

No need to take reports and then calculate numbers. Just like customizable reports, Easylib comes with customizable statistics. Again you chose your own selection criteria and then run statistics. Very powerful feature for your library. 

Stock Verification

Stock verification is part of any library. You can perform full stock verification either once a year or rack wise (also called cycle count in Inventory Management).  And then you get multiple reports and options to mark as separate category or withdraw them or get additional reports etc etc. And if you happen to find the book, you simply restore the same.

How libraries can help contain Corona Virus?

Libraries are a major hubs of academic gatherings. Students come there to read, borrow and return books, material friends, exchange books, and/or just to have a good time in a silent reading atmosphere.

So, it is important Libraries follow best practices to contain corona virus. Here are a few best practices we have thought how you could play a role.

Present best practices

Urgently build a power point presentation of how you can contain the spread of corona virus. Make a good ten to twelve slides. Those of whom you have upgraded to Easylib 6.2a, save the powerpoint as images and upload them to Kiosk Management Module in Easylib. Set the timings to two to five seconds and let the information play.

Communicate with end users

Form library users groups in Easylib 6.2a or elsewhere. Communicate with your user frequently on library timings, best practices and any instructions.

Keep sanitizers handy

Make sure to keep a few sanitizers at the common areas. Keep things like antibacterial soaps like Dettol etc at the washrooms. During the regular circulation, do not touch your body parts after you handle a book and wash them thoroughly before eating.

Have students sit far from each other

Ensure that your students sis at least six feet apart.

Issue more books

As much as possible, give more books to students to read at home.
