LibraryWorld and Pearson Announce ISV Partnership

Today, we are pleased to announce a Pearson partnership with LibraryWorld and introduce Library Pro users to the LibraryWorld.com online service. LibraryWorld provides a full range of library applications including catalog, circulation, inventory, serial tracking, and online patron access. More than 2,700 libraries already use LibraryWorld to automate collections, including schools, colleges, public libraries, and a wide range of special libraries and information centers.

As you may already know, LibraryWorld is the original developer of Library Pro so we are more than familiar with the software you are currently using! In the coming days, a representative from LibraryWorld will be contacting you to discuss the logistics of seamlessly migrating from Library Pro to the online LibraryWorld.com service by June 1, 2013.  This date is especially important, as Pearson will no longer support Library Pro after September 1, 2013.

LibraryWorld allows you to:
  • Log in to your library from anywhere in the world
  • Access millions of free MARC records for cataloguing purposes
  • Attach book jacket covers to catalog records
  • View linked web resources including e-books, PDF’s, images, and more
  • Receive product enhancements instantly
Cost Considerations:
  • Conversion from Library Pro to LibraryWorld.com is free
  • The annual cost for a single LibraryWorld.com library is $425 USD
  • Pearson will refund any unused maintenance for Library Pro

The conversion to LibraryWorld is easy and free. In addition, your annual maintenance and support costs will decrease! To date, LibraryWorld’s technical staff has successfully converted more than 1,000 libraries just like yours.information.

We understand that there will be questions, so please do not hesitate to call us at 1-800-852-2777, or send an email to sales@libraryworld.com.
