6 of the Best Free Linux Library Management Systems


6 of the Best Free Linux Library Management Systems
To provide an insight into the quality of software available, we have compiled a list of 6 excellent library management systems. Hopefully there will be something of interest for anyone who needs an enterprise resource planning system for a library.

Now, let's explore the 6 library management systems at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, providing a screenshot of the software in action, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.


These are nice, of course, but what to do when you experience a total crash? Post on their forum and hope there will be a right answer in the next 30 minutes? The thing there is with the enterprise solutions is that there is a 24/7 phone support. If we encounter a crash, we call them and they usually solve the problem in a matter of minutes.

How many of these open source projects offers the same? In the US? Perhaps some. In the Northern Europe? None. I say it again: None. As long a library doesn´t have a 5000€/month paid software engineer on their list, these can easily be forgotten.
