A simple to use library system with fantastic customer support at an amazing price!

Liz Foot

School Business Manager, Ashley Infant School

Ashley Infant School in New Milton, Hampshire is a fully inclusive school with the core values of “Confidence, Happiness, Achievement, Respect and Motivation (CHARM)”. The school has over 200 pupils on roll, and were rated “Good” by Ofsted in their last inspection.

Keen to try new technology and always looking for cost savings, Liz was quick to adopt Libresoft Librarian, and was one of our very first schools.

She was very helpful during the early days of testing, offering great feedback, and was amazed at the speed of the response to suggested improvements, and that such a great service could be so competitively priced.

“This is a really easy to use system with great customer support at an incredibly reasonable price point. I would recommend Libresoft Librarian to anyone.”

We’ve been using Libresoft Librarian for a few months now, and I just wanted to say a big thank you for such a brilliant system!
The team behind it are all fantastic too. Any issues we have get sorted so quickly! Is a real pleasure to use, and the different themes keep everything interesting.

Jo Bolton

LRC Manager, Amersham School

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.”

We have used Libresoft Librarian for almost a year and have found the company and system both highly user friendly.

Rachel Scott

Prep Librarian, Berkhamsted Prep School

Berkhamsted Prep School in Hertfordshire is a coeducational independent school and is part of a supportive, family community.  The school is recognised as providing a high quality education experience for its pupils. 

The school librarians quickly got to grips with Libresoft Librarian and were soon testing out various functions within the system such as entering different loan settings for user groups, completing stock checks and running various reports.

Since coming on board, Rachel has been impressed with the Libresoft Librarian system and is delighted with the speedy support:

“Queries have been resolved efficiently and we’re able to use the system both for day to day circulation and reports.”

Libresoft Librarian has been built with continuous input from school librarians. The system is focused on helping schools to get more done with their precious, limited time – finding your way around is easy with the uncluttered, modern design.

Our team prides itself on designing an intuitive system that is so easy to use that training is not required. Even so we provide a super-swift response for support and feature requests so that you can get your tasks done painlessly. As a web-based, no installation or plug-ins are required.

With a focus on engaging students in the reading experience, the ability to review and rate books has been very popular with staff and students. The reviews can also be shared to a display screen for other students and parents to see.

Combined with voice packs, stock check, in-depth reports and a great price, Libresoft Librarian is a hard package to beat.
