Library Special Collections
Integrated collections management solutions for your library
Designed for managing collections, information and knowledge, our library solutions have been deployed by business, government, higher education, healthcare, cultural and legal institutions for more than 30 years. As well as managing typical library collections (books, audio-visual material, serials, articles, etc.), our customers manage collections of maps, historical publications, games, reports, digital assets, and more.
For institutions with collections that also include museum and / or archive collections, we provide integrated collections management solutions, allowing you to manage your library assets holistically.

What Our Customers Say
Keeping The Ministry of Health, Welfare & Sport on the Right Page
Ministry civil servants can subscribe to more than 400 special subjects from the digital special library. Els, Ronald, and their six colleagues search for, update, and add new material daily.
“The old IT system was a dinosaur. The new system paid off in a year – despite numerous customised solutions. Everyone now has a completely different overview, accessibility and considerably shorter lead-times.”
