ALEPH Integrated Library System

Librarians using computers.

Streamline delivery of your library’s services using automated tools and processes in a centralized ILS.


A powerful, integrated library system (ILS) provides Florida’s public college and university libraries an array of automated tools that make it easier to manage library materials and streamline delivery of library services. Libraries use the Aleph software-based ILS for:

  • Materials acquisition and processing: ordering and processing books/items for addition to their collection.
  • Metadata and inventory control: cataloging new materials and entering that information for use by other libraries, managing bibliographic data and records ("metadata") associated with each item in their collection, and keeping track of their entire library collection (inventory).
  • Collection management: circulating books and other library materials, and using on-demand and system-generated statistical reports to manage the collection.
Search our comprehensive knowledge base to find frequently asked questions and detailed instructions on using each module of the ILS. Access Aleph manuals and supporting documentation.
 
Currently, FALSC, FLVC, and the libraries are in the process of implementing a new integrated library system, Sierra/Encore Duet, that will replace Aleph in the future. Find information about the implementation project here
