Pros

The program is reliable and consistent. I love the organization of it and appreciate the willingness of the company to constantly be making improvements and updates.
I like that the features are user friendly and that there are constant updates from the company to ensure ease of use.
I have been using Alexandria for five years and love that it is easy for me and the students to use. Their customer service is excellent and always friendly.

Cons

I find that adding subject headings is a bit confusing. As often as not I end up duplicating terms and I never can figure out why.
Somewhat disappointing when you compare it to the big companies.
We so much rely on internet connectivity to access the library solution. It is frustrating to both staff and patrons when internet is down, as access is not possible.

Apollo

Much more user friendly than Alexandria

Reviewed 5 years ago

I worked in a public library for seven years using Alexandria it was hooked in with our school system which was very nice but I did not find it to be very user-friendly for patrons or librarians . I am now at a library that uses Apollo and find it to be very user-friendly with above and beyond technical support. Today Emily spent a very long time working through all the problems that I was experiencing in my first week as library director. She literally made my day being extremely patient when I had patrons coming in.
