Apollo for public libraries – Artemis for school libraries

The Biblionix DNA is was seperates our library automation systems from the competition.  We used the award winning Apollo framework to develop Artemis as a product for school libraries while keeping the Apollo secret sauce completely intact.

Our vision

Library’s working together is one of the greatest gifts to furthering the knowledge of mankind.  What if a local public library and a local school library could come together and work towards that goal?  We want to realize this dream by creating FlexShare™ Community.

      The new way to Consortium

      Apollo’s FlexShare™ is the most versatile consortium package available. Imagine sharing your resources with other Apollo libraries while retaining your autonomy.  This is core of our community library vision.  Imagine two independent Apollo public library’s sharing items and patrons with no great effort?  Now add in Artemis school libraries and a communty can have the public library and the school libraries in sync for full community support.

      Here is a short video explaining FlexShare, it’s totally free for all Biblionix customers.

      Marshall Breeding was so captivated by the unique solution of providing “the best of both worlds” he decided to include it as a feature in his Smart Libraries Newsletter for July 2018, now available even to non-subscribers. He spoke highly about its ability for libraries to effortlessly collaborate and loan out their collections without heavy overhead costs or complications typically encountered with consortial infrastructure models.

      Access to personal information is limited. For example: library A has no access to the personal information of patrons of other libraries unless and until the patron borrows from Library A. Even then, options are available regarding the degree of personal information that is shared.

      FlexShare Independence

      Forget having to conform to restrictive consortia guidelines; with FlexShare libraries, you get full freedom and independence. Customize your own settings and rules choices without sharing control of the library.

      • Libraries can enter and exit the consortium at will.  There is no charge for participating, for entering, or for exiting.
      • Every participating library retains its autonomy. Its policies and configuration are unaffected (like circulation rules, material types, patron types).
      • Customer support is provided directly to the library.
      • Option choices are made solely by the individual library.
      • Billing continues to be dedicated to each library.

      FlexShare Discovery

      Patrons can now search other libraries without ever leaving the comfort of their own! This convenient access is powered by a home catalog that presents familiar branding and provides direct connection to local library resources.

      • Compatible with any Apollo or Z39.50-enabled library

      FlexShare Members

      Library patrons no longer need a separate card for each library. With just one home library card, they can access all participating libraries – making it easier to explore and discover literature from around the world! Library staff won’t have any extra work on their hands either; with one common block system shared among multiple sites, managing accounts has never been simpler.

      • Patrons can checkout items from other participating libraries using only their home library card. Only 1 account exists for each patron.
      • Patrons who are blocked at any library are blocked at all libraries.

      The world of libraries has undergone a sea change in recent times. Libraries no longer just store books, they have become a hub of information and idea sharing. Managing this vast pool of knowledge can be extremely daunting without proper organization and automation. Thankfully, library automation systems have made the process of managing a modern library a breeze. Here’s how Biblionix automates and optimizes every area of library operations with our modern automated library information system. 

      Cataloging and Metadata Management 

      At the heart of any library is its collection, so effective cataloging is an essential step in organizing and retrieving library resources. Biblionix offers robust cataloging tools that simplify the creation, maintenance, and discovery of bibliographic records. 

      Through metadata management, librarians can efficiently classify and describe items, ensuring accurate and consistent information for both staff and users. Biblionix’s metadata system also features multiple field validation options, ensuring that inaccurate or incomplete information is never added to the system. 

      Circulation and Patron Management 

      Efficient circulation workflows are crucial for a seamless library experience. This is where Biblionix’s automation software comes in. The system streamlines the checkout, return, renewal, and holds processes by automating them. 

      In addition, Biblionix also provides comprehensive patron management features that help librarians maintain accurate records, track borrowing history, manage fines, and personalize services to meet individual needs. With Biblionix, patrons can be served quickly and efficiently. 

      OPAC and Discovery Services 

      The Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) is the primary gateway for users to explore a library’s resources. Library automation systems provide powerful OPAC interfaces that offer intuitive search capabilities, browse options, and filters to enhance the discovery experience. This makes it easier for guests to find what they are searching for. The algorithms work behind the scenes to retrieve relevant results when a patron types in a keyword or topic. 

      Biblionix’s OPAC offers a search interface that is effortlessly navigable, making it accessible to all levels of patrons. The discovery experience gets a lot more comfortable with Biblionix software, as it offers multiple language support, which caters for non-native speakers. 

      Acquisition Systems 

      Libraries rely on donations and acquisitions to enrich their collection to meet the diverse needs of their patrons. Acquisitions systems help streamline the entire acquisition workflow. Biblionix offers an out-of-the-box acquisition tool that seamlessly integrates with other acquisitions vendors. The budgeting process is automated, which ensures that libraries keep track of their spending. The acquisitions module of Biblionix has features that quickly record details of items for acquisition and generate summary reports of orders and budget. 

      Reporting and Analytics 

      Gone are the days when librarians had to rely on guesswork to make data-driven decisions. Today’s libraries require software that provides comprehensive reporting and analytics tools. Biblionix’s reporting feature provides a suite of customizable reports, allowing librarians to access a wealth of information to support the library’s decision-making process. 

      Librarians can view usage statistics, patron behavior, circulation patterns, and other data points to make informed decisions concerning the library’s resources. This capability helps optimize the library’s collection and identify potential areas of improvement. 

      Become a Library Your Patrons Love With Biblionix’s Automation Software 

      Biblionix is the best choice for library automation software. The platform offers powerful acquisition systems, comprehensive reporting and analytics, ease of use, and exceptional customer support. 

      Libraries that implement Biblionix’s capabilities can streamline their operations, making it easier for librarians to focus on their core responsibilities, such as supporting research, fostering information literacy, and providing personalized assistance to patrons. By leveraging technology in these five key areas, libraries can improve efficiencies, optimize their resources, and enhance the overall user experience.
