Integrated collections management solutions for your library

Libraries

Designed for managing collections, information and knowledge, our Libraries solutions have been deployed by business, government, higher education, healthcare, cultural and legal institutions for more than 30 years. As well as managing typical library collections (books, audio-visual material, serials, articles, etc.), our customers manage collections of maps, historical publications, games, reports, digital assets, and more.

For institutions with collections that also include Museum and / or Archive collections, we provide integrated collections management solutions, allowing you to manage your library assets holistically.

Axiell also provides innovative end-to-end technology solutions for Public Libraries.
