Andornot Starter Kit for Libraries

An integrated library system built with DB/TextWorks.

If you are starting a new library or finally have time to think about implementing a loans or ordering system, the Andornot Starter Kit for Libraries, used with Inmagic DB/TextWorks software, could be just what you need.

The kit contains all the necessary elements to set up a Windows-based integrated library system. You can import data from your existing textbases, from other programs, or you can start from scratch with a system that includes modules for cataloging, loans, serials, ordering and more.

Based on our years of experience working with libraries and using Inmagic DB/TextWorks software, the Andornot team has created a flexible and scalable system that can be used exactly as is, or it can be customized or modified to suit your needs.

Key Features of the Starter Kit for Libraries

All the databases in the kit work together as an Integrated Library System.

  •  A user-friendly design with consistent data elements such as color coding for each textbase, and graphics and text to help indicate the function of each screen.
  •  A menu screen with typical workflow shortcuts.
  •  Query screens with plenty of search options, plus search tips and hints.
  •  Brief search results reports contain ample navigation buttons to assist you with tasks - from performing a new search, to changing forms, to printing search results.
  •  A full record display showing all relevant data in each record.
  •  Data entry forms to allow you to easily add new data into the textbase or edit an existing record. Validation lists are plentiful and fields are grouped into related categories.
  •  Data entry forms include scripted search boxes to correctly link to other textbases, such as Loans and Orders.
  •  Catalogue records can be imported from other catalogue sources through Bookwhere.
  •  Textbases are included for a catalog, serials, orders, loans, holds, borrowers, suppliers, and barcode generation.

The Kit and DB/TextWorks are available for on-premises installation, or through our Managed Hosting service.
