Beginning in 1986, Apple Computer Product Manager Norman Kline built a library automation software program
called 'The Mac Library System' that used Macintosh computers to automate a wide range of libraries in
schools, special, academic and public libraries.
In 1990, LibraryWorld launched the first fully integrated cross-platform Macintosh and Windows program for library automation.
Growth was spurred by the purchase of the Columbia Library System from the McGraw Hill Companies and the licensing of key technology to many companies in the information market sector.
Since then, LibraryWorld has grown and involved into a leader in Web based 'Cloud' library solutions. On these pages you will discover LibaryWorld Version 3 which provides powerful solutions
for automating collections of any size.
Currently there are over 3,000 libraries using LibraryWorld in every state of the United States and in dozens of countries around the world. Every conceivable library type uses the service, including school, academic, special, public, health, law, museum, film, architecture, first responders and many others.
LibraryWorld has proven over the years to be one of the most cost effective and powerful means to automate a collection.
