    Library Management software

    I'm interested in knowing if there is any software available for managing small church and/or school libraries.

    Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I'm using Alexandrian Book Collection Manager for my private library -- you can check it out through Applications>Add/Remove Applications. As I say it works for my private library -- your mileage may vary.

    UPDATE:
    Alexandria Book Manager crashed on my system and is unusable -- so far I have received no help from the folks at Ruby. Before investing much time and effort in this program you may want to think twice. Also has not been actively developed since 2005. . .

    BTW there is an online solution -- Library Thing. For more than 200 books the cost is either $10/year or $25 for 'life' you can check this out at http://www.librarything.com/ It's had rave reviews in the PC press (either PC World or PC Magazine fairly recently)

    I imagine it's a bit late for this, since four years have passed, but I found this on Google, so maybe the reply won't be in vain after all.

    One of my other searches led me to a thread about Koha, an open source ILS that looks very solid. It's well suited to Debian/Ubuntu, and looks like there is a wide adoption and decent support already. It's way overkill for what I need, but I may try it out anyway. Another option is Evergreen

    Cheers!
