The PROLIB CLOUD Library System is a solution that enables the management of library resources and services through software accessible over the Internet. For the price of a monthly subscription, libraries can utilize the full range of features and modules available in the PROLIB system.
PROLIB in the Cloud - What Advantages to Consider When Implementing
Flexibility and Scalability
PROLIB CLOUD can be tailored to the needs and requirements of any library, regardless of its size, type, or location. PROLIB is a software that allows for the full automation of library processes related to the collection, processing, searching, and sharing of documents, ensuring control over loans, readers, and collections, and also enabling the library to share its own catalogs through the OPAC (INTEGRO) module on the Internet. The system supports all library, bibliographic, and information procedures. The modular construction of the system and the cooperation of all its elements help users avoid duplicate card files and repeated data entry. In all modules and collections, easy editing, adding, and deleting of records are ensured, and any changes made in one record cause the corresponding changes in related records in real-time.
Costs and Time Savings
PROLIB CLOUD eliminates the need for purchasing, installing, and maintaining server hardware and utility software, which involves substantial initial costs at the system implementation stage, as well as inevitable costs during the further operation of the infrastructure. PROLIB CLOUD operates on a subscription model, where the library pays for the use of the system, allowing for proper budget management. Using PROLIB CLOUD also saves time for library staff, who do not have to deal with technical issues, updates, or backups, and can focus on serving readers and the development of the library.
Security and Privacy
PROLIB CLOUD ensures a high level of security and privacy for library data, which are stored on remote servers protected by advanced technologies and implemented security protocols. The PROLIB CLOUD service team provides backup creation and data restoration as needed. The system also guarantees compliance with personal data protection regulations, such as the GDPR.
Accessibility and Mobility
PROLIB CLOUD offers modern and advanced features that facilitate the management and sharing of library resources, such as cataloging, searching, reserving, lending, returning, reporting, integrations with other systems and platforms, etc. As part of the subscription fee, system updates are provided, which, thanks to implemented optimizations and new solutions, continuously improve the quality and efficiency of services provided by the library.
