Liberty overview

Liberty from Softlink is a cloud-based knowledge & content management and library automation solution which enables the management of all library resources, whether physical, electronic, or virtual, from a single platform. The system is used by public libraries, specialist libraries, academic and higher education institutions, law firms, nonprofit organizations, government, and more.

Liberty allows users to manage and report on all library resources from within a single platform. Various navigation and search options are built-in, including book carousel navigation, predictive text searching, full-text search, faceted search, and advanced federated search. Library staff and users can manage their own personal library profiles, allowing self-service requesting and reservation of resources, and loan renewals. The system is self-checkout ready, with support for barcode and RFID scanning, and allows MARC21 records to be imported from other databases and libraries around the world.

Liberty also offers a range of custom modules for managing different library functions. The acquisitions module is designed to streamline the ordering and receipt processes for resources, with users able to configure cost centers, funds, and budgets, track expenditure, and review running budgets. Integration with OverDrive allows users to download audiobooks and eBooks directly from within the search interface in Liberty, via eZRead. The serials module enables the management of subscriptions to electronic journals and periodicals, with automatic notification of new arrivals, automated check-in processing, cataloguing of individual articles, and more. Third party integrations supplement the library catalogue with book reviews, cover images, summaries, tables of contents, annotations, excerpts, author biographies, and other information. SIP2 integration also allows users to connect Liberty with security gates, self service machines, and other hardware.
