Artemis ILS

The Artemis® ILS (Integrated Library System) was designed from the ground up by practicing librarians to be a hosted ILS for public libraries. This provides our customers with amazing efficiencies and connectedness. And those customers are only public libraries with fewer than 300,000 items. Artemis customers say it is easy to use and dramatically increases ease of use and efficiency. Your staff will be able to accomplish more and deliver more to patrons with less time.

  • With no fee or commitment, we’ll import any or all of your library’s data into a new Artemis account so you can test drive it. Learn More (PDF) Take as long as you like; your migration comfort is paramount. You don’t pay anything until after you’ve migrated. Request your data trial now!

  • Responsive catalog

Smooth, Comfortable Migration

The free trial lets you virtually eliminate any leap of faith. You send us a copy of your data using the easy and secure upload page for only your library. We’ll import it into Artemis in a day or three then we’ll turn you loose on it! You can verify that we’ve gotten all your data copied and imported correctly. You can try everything (circulate, catalog, run reports, etc) as well as see how Artemis performs in your library. Plus, Artemis can use existing barcode labels, scanners, and printers.

So, while your library continues to operate normally, we’ll work together to answer your Artemis questions and address your issues. Take your time, because your comfort comes first. If you decide against Artemis, we’ll delete your data and wish you well. If you decide to go with Artemis, you and any staff/volunteers can take the free on-line, live training. We’ll also get on the phone with you, one-on-one, to make sure all the setup items and polices are configured the way you want them. Then we’ll pick the magic date! You’ll send a fresh upload of your data after you close one day, and we’ll replace all the trial data overnight. You can open the next day with Artemis! It IS that easy.
