It's totally flexible!

Each Admin Licence is a user licence for a named cataloguer / library administrator(s). Each licence allows one library administrator to login. You can purchase more Admin Licences as and when required.

Library administrators can create catalogue records and enter data generally throughout the system according to the Package you have chosen.

Please note: the Web OPAC which comes with this Package gives you a Site Licence so you can share your catalogue with unlimited library users. Library users do not have access to the Library Admin functionality.
