Handy Library Manager Description
Handy Library Manager is an application that enables you to organize all aspects associated with your library activity, from managing the original books and the copies you have in the inventory to obtaining reports on the members, loans and returns status.
User-friendly interface and intuitive functionality
First off, you should know that because the application enables you to manage a database, it means that you should install and launch the application as administrator. The program comes with an intuitive GUI that is organized in several tabs, namely the main report tab, add items or borrowers, backup, maintenance and a table for viewing and editing.
You can preview more details about loans, borrowers, new entries in your library, so on and so forth by accessing the dedicated tab. In case you are missing a piece of information, then you will be happy to learn that the app opens a new window that enables you to enter the extra data.
On a side note, when accessing a new function, the app opens the window in full screen, a feature that can be slightly irritating. In addition, it does not allow you to make any modifications to the previous window until you close the one you are working on.
Keep track of overdue books and manage reservations
The strong point of the utility comes from the numerous reports it can provide you, so you can be permanently updated on the loans, borrowers, members, library’s inventory as well as the copies left.
The logs are detailed and feature data such as title, author, type, copy, barcode and the phone number of the borrower. Therefore, if a borrower is late or overdue with a book, you can send them a reminder via email or call them, if the case dictates it.
You should know that the program allows you to make reservations for book copies you have in the inventory, a feature that could come in handy if you have partnerships with schools and colleges for instance.
Enables you to print labels and reports
It is worth mentioning that the application allows you to print out various reports regarding the status of the books loaned and those overdue based on the borrower. Consequentially, you can proceed to take the necessary measures against the borrowers who are late with their books.
In addition, you can print out labels that include the ID, title and author, an option that can definitely speed up data entries and that can be useful during peak seasons, such as autumn when school starts, for instance.
A feature-rich tool that can help you manage your library efficiently
All in all, Handy Library Manager packs several useful functions that can lend you a hand with inventory and borrowers’ management,
