Tested and Proven Through the Years

From our first DOS program to our current web-based systems, we have always aimed to provide affordable library automation and asset tracking software that delivers more features but demands fewer technical and financial resources.

Work on the first program began in 1989. This product was originally known as MACS (Media Access Control System), but soon became MLS (Master Library System). MLS was originally developed and marketed as an MS-DOS® product. As computers became more affordable and accessible, Concourse for Windows® 95 was released, quickly followed by eZcat. Many products have been created since then, but by far the one that stands out the most is Atriuum, our flagship product, which was first released in 2004.

Our innovative approach to library management is a source of pride for us and one that we have maintained across the years. At Book Systems, we strive continuously to offer powerful, affordable, and easy-to-use software that makes your work as a librarian uncomplicated and more efficient.
