Love your online library.
BiblioCommons builds software that transforms the public library's essential online services—your website, your catalog, your events calendar—from transactions to experiences worthy of your public library.
A better online catalog that seamlessly integrates with every major ILS. It's the foundation of your patrons' online experience of the library, which is why it's the foundation of everything we build.
A complete website builder and content management system that's cleverly optimized for public libraries and seamlessly integrated with your catalog and events. Up and running in months, not years.
An events calendar for public libraries that works like the rest of the web. It's a patron-friendly, fully responsive and visually appealing way to manage and promote your library’s programs and events.
Well-loved by patrons...
... and staff alike.
"With the switch to BiblioCommons, the number of holds placed jumped and has sustained itself since. We believe this is due to the ease of finding materials. Previously, users had to navigate in and out of records to meet specific needs (e.g. games for kids). With a better search and facets for narrowing, users spend less time searching and more time browsing (and placing holds) than before."
Christine Waida, Manager of Support Services

"Very few agencies comprehend how complicated a library website actually is. It seems simple. But it’s not. We selected an agency that had worked with a very sophisticated library. And still, they really didn’t understand how libraries worked. We had already selected Wordpress for the backend but it would have had to be severely modified for our needs, and BiblioCommons was already doing that, and the backend delivered more than we ever even asked for. We couldn’t believe it."
Susan Odencrantz, Director

"Were I to compare the process of implementing BiblioCommons to eating a piece of pie, I would say that eating a piece of pie is probably easier – but just slightly. Thank you… for putting together such a forward thinking piece of software."
Sam Liston, Technology Manager
Oceanside Public Library
"We’ve found BiblioCommons to be a great library partner -- the best library automation company we’ve ever worked with. Implementation was smooth, support is responsive and lines of communication are always open. The return on investment is ongoing -- we have a catalog we’re proud of that makes us look good, an increasingly engaged online community and our customers love it. Definitely some of the best money we’ve ever spent!"
Pat Kopp, Head of Technical Services

"Perhaps aside from opening a new branch library, I have never seen a service improvement that generated as much interest and enthusiasm from our users as the BiblioCommons discovery catalogue. Eighteen months after it was launched at Oakville Public Library in July 2008, staff continue to hear comments like 'I love it.' and 'It's like Amazon only better.'"
