The "Go to page" option allows quick access to other screens, such as user management, fees, catalog search, etc. In the event of a system or network failure is the local Emergency PC function is available.

LIBERO circulation offers all issue functions, guaranteeing trouble free operation: issues, returns, renewals, reserves, receiving fines, re-registration etc.

To control circulation the library can set parameters for media type, renewal periods, loan periods, overdue notice periods, a library calendar, fines, receipt printing and many others.

Overview screens guide the library staff and let them choose whether to use the mouse or the keyboard. Function keys or buttons mean you can switch easily between issues, returns, membership management and other system areas.

The user is supported throughout the circulation area by meaningful messages. Dialogue boxes appear for any answers that are needed. The LIBERO system uses messages for members and media types among other things and the text of these messages can be set in the parameters module. It prints receipts and can do individual or bulk renewals according to choice.

All current barcodes can be used. The necessary barcode reader is simply attached to the PC’s keyboard.

In case of a breakdown of the central system, emergency member registration and offline capture of issues and returns is available.

LIBERO is delivered with an interface to a stock security system or a self issue unit via SIP2 as standard.

The SIP2-Interface is included in the standard LIBERO software package.
