Amersham School is a mixed secondary academy in Buckinghamshire. Their mission statement “Live, Learn and Succeed – Together” lies at the heart of everything they do. The school has approximately 850 students aged 11 to 18 including a large sixth form.
Jo was eager to find a new school library system that supported their students on their learning journey. The demo on Libresoft Librarian, along with “helpful, plentiful and in no way pushy” advice, convinced Jo that the system was right for their school.
Switching library system can be a daunting process and Jo admitted that she was apprehensive ahead of the transfer because the school had faced a traumatic migration with their previous library system. However, her concerns were soon alleviated and she was also very impressed with how simple and quick the process was. All the data was handled with precision and care and the entire catalogue, users and loans were imported meaning all barcodes remained the same and all loans continued as they were.
“The system is a joy to use. I’m not a fan of computers yet I find Libresoft Librarian so easy to use.”
