Some new tools for staff ...

Quick Cat

Quickly add new books to your catalogue using iMLS.  A great tool if you have parent helpers involved in setting up your new primary school library but only have one barcode scanner.


Issue and return resources using the App.  You can use the device camera, keyboard or our Opticon Bluetooth scanners.  Circulate can also be used in offline mode in case your internet isn't available in school.  Primary schools with iPads or tablets in classrooms can now use these to issue and return classroom resources.

Stock Check

Carry out stock checks to keep your library catalogue up to date.  Use the device camera, keyboard or our Opticon Bluetooth scanner.  Either way, you will save on the cost of normal expensive portable barcode readers.

Why not add one of our optional portable Bluetooth scanners...
