Association of Research Libraries: Current Automation Systems

This table indicates the library automation systems that have been selected by each of the members of the Association of Research Libraries. In some cases, libraries are still in the process of implementation, and the online catalog that you see in production may be based on their previous library automation system. For more information about the ARL libraries from libraries.org, you can click here.

The members of the Association of Research Libraries represent the high end of the library automation marketplace. To serve these libraries, a library automation system must include a full suite of modules for each aspect of library operation, be able to handle extremely large collections, provide sophisticated features, adhere to library standards, and sustain many multiple users and a high volume of transactions. The systems selected by these libraries can be considered the best available for large research libraries.
