This wiki is dedicated to library automation topics. Our goal is to provide information, as well as a clear and proven process for automating the school library collection. Our ultimate goal is the completion of our Union Catalog and Interlibrary Loan program for all New York City K-12 school library collections.

An automated library is an educational tool that
  • Provides time for inquiry and instruction
  • Provides an environment for students to acquire 21st Century information seeking skills
  • Provides intellectual access to the library’s collection
  • Provides a system to manage materials, patrons and reports

If you are just starting to automate or are in the process of automating, please consult the documents from the Automation Basics page.
