You know the saying “Good things come in small packages”? Well, sometimes, big things come from small companies! I’ve been doing some work for a group of library technology consultants who I want to let you all know about. They have a small company called Law Library Management and, among other solutions, they develop custom applications for libraries using the Quickbase platform.
One of the applications they have developed is a complete library management system that’s fully customizable called HOLMES. It’s unique in that it’s built on top of the Intuit Quickbase platform, which is a very powerful application development environment that offers complete flexibility to tailor your individual application for your library’s needs. You may have heard of Intuit’s other applications which include Quickbooks and Turbo Tax. This solution is perfect for small and solo libraries and yet can scale for larger academic libraries as well.
They are also currently working with the library community to develop a project management application that will take into account the specific needs of librarians. And they are currently looking for beta testers, so if you’re interested please sign up here.
These folks are doing some pretty unique things. In addition to these two apps, they also develop specific custom applications for libraries according to their specifications. Quickbase is an incredibly versatile cloud application platform so the possibilities really are endless.
