CONCEPT III is a complete web- or cloud-based Integrated Library System (ILS). Use any computer or device that has a browser and an Internet connection. That's pretty much everything we use nowadays including smartphones and iPads.

CONCEPT III includes the Public Catalog (OPAC) that anyone can access. Not only can your patrons access the catalog anytime, anywhere, BUT they can create HOLDs, list what they have checked out (and overdue!), even review their checkout history.

CONCEPT III has staff-only access. With your own passwords, you and your staff can safely login to do your library work:

  • Process incoming materials (quick cataloging with the instant ISBN LOC searches [qLOC]) at the library, or anywhere, for that matter.
  • print labels, bar codes, donation bookplates; preview before printing
  • manage your check-in and check out with or without a scanner. Everything 'circulation' (fines, overdues, holds, add patrons) is handled conveniently on one screen.
  • print reports; extensive array of choices or create your own custom reports
  • inventory your collection with any number of helpers using their laptops, phones, and tablets, all at the same time! DOMINATE your Inventory with CONCEPT III!

CONCEPT III lets you set your own color scheme; assign a background image; 'attract-mode' rotating book cover images on the OPAC

CONCEPT III replaces the our console-based programs:

  • PC Card Catalog BASIC and CIRCULATTION
  • Public Access and CONCEPT I OPAC
  • HomeWork
  • ReInstate
  • OurLibraryOnline Web Catalog Service
