Public Libraries

Of all the types of libraries using OPALS, public libraries serve the greatest age range. Membership includes infants to great grandparents.

OPALS technology is guided by librarians working in each context and public librarians have influenced its ongoing development.

OPALS public access catalog includes a range of query interfaces appealing to each age group. Among other features, one of the most highly developed self service request/reserve/hold applications, self service checkout and return (Sip2 compliant) using RFID tags or barcodes, CMS type portlet utilities enabling library homepage authoring and maintenance, Mobile APP, digital resources archive & eBook management, reports, and equipment/asset management.

OPALS open source model is fully supported, so you do not have to be a programmer or technician to implement it or keep it going.

OPALS is a Web-based, cloud-based, hosted system; a turnkey open-source technology alternative where libraries benefit from collaborative software engineering, timely updates (at least three annual update suites), professional and personal technical support, consulting and training.
