Parameterization

Unlimited number of parameters

The Parameter Dashboard allows the library to customize the LIBERO application software to the particular conditions and requirements of the library. This is based on an extensive parameter handbook, which is available to the library early on during the preparation phase for new installations or conversions to LIBERO. While parameters are being set up, the library is supported by LIB-IT's team of qualified librarians.

All parameters can be altered by library personnel – without the support of the IT department!

The Parameter Dashboard is notable for the fact that all parameters are defined using the same user interface and that the number of parameters is not limited. Well over 500 parameters are available to adapt the functionality of the LIBERO library system to meet the requirements of your library.
