Alternative Library - Introduction
Alternative Library (AL) is a fully integrated library database program that enables users to keep track of even the largest of library collections. AL will not only track books & periodicals, but can also handle audio, video and multimedia CD-ROM / DVD-ROM titles.
AL is a multi user, multi tasking system that runs on most platforms. For more details, see the system requirements page.
With windows, icons, menus and button bars, AL is easy to use and requires very little training as it is based on point and click operation. And our easy to follow flowchart makes it a breeze to learn and operate. An added advantage is our Lookup Table facility which contains a store of commonly used words and phrases which allows for fast, problem free data entry.
Alternative Library contains a full multi level security and password system, which allows for full or partial (from the entire database down to a single person) access to edit, insert, delete, view or print any part of the data.
There's no need to re enter your existing library items from your old system, Alternative Library has the ability to import data from other packages, such as Oasis, Alice, or any other program capable of the USMARC format. This not only saves time and money, but makes the initial setup and installation process easier.
