MicroLCS is a simple, easy to use and flexible OPAC and cataloging
system. Though it is targeted for
small libraries, its flexible and scalable design allows it
to be used in libraries of any type. It is easy to manage
and requires no third party software
other than Java to run. The clean and simple user interface provides
full boolean searching including nested searches and searches
across all indexed fields. This search system can handle any arbitrarily complex
boolean search with a power and flexibility not found in
any other library system.
At version 1.1 MicroLCS is an OPAC only. It does not yet support
circulation functions. These are currently under development.
- Clean consistent and simple user interfaces that are easy to use.
- Flexible configuration. Title and holdings databases are 100 per cent configurable. No hard coded fields. Any and all fields can be indexed and searchable.
- Platform independent -- runs on any computer that supports Java.
- Advanced searching capabilities support full boolean searching (with AND OR and NOT operators), nested searches and searching on all indexed fields.
- Powerful and easy to learn search syntax available in a single search mode -- no Basic/Advanced search dichotomy.
- Self contained. No third party software needed to configure and run.
- Client-server architecture allows a networked deployment with unlimited number of users.
- Supports collections of up to 128000 titles and 256000 items.
