Search Portal & Collaboration

By taking advantage of our pre-built search portal templates designed for library portals, information and knowledge centres, you can quickly start providing fast, secure access to internal and external materials on any device due to Soutron’s responsive design.

The Soutron LMS supports single or multiple locations, with customised information centre portals, seamlessly integrated with SharePoint and Microsoft Active Directory.  

Soutron Library Management tasks and workflows appeal to many because of the simplified operations and associated cost savings and efficiencies that can be achieved. 

Catalogues, Item Management & Circulations

When we say flexibility is in our DNA, we mean it.

Within the Soutron LMS there can be any number of fields, record templates in addition to content categories, and relationships between data elements can be easily established to make the management and presentation of both physical and digital data more meaningful, unlike other turnkey library LMS systems.

Automatically retrieve  metadata from external library services e.g. Nielsens, Jisc (COPAC), Library of Congress, or Google Books.

Take control of your circulations and physical materials with extensive submission and item management features.

Provide for the intelligent capture of project artifacts by creating your own custom content submission forms, ensuring a way for your end-users to submit their own materials, complete with full document review and metadata management tools for document submissions.

 

Thesaurus / Authority Control

Our Thesaurus module provides a greater user experience for searching, display of information and the ability to share entries across your organisation via its' own API.

Create any number of metadata thesauri, each with a full complement of built in term relationships.
Share common taxonomy entries between corporate departments.

Plus, the Soutron Metadata Summarizer extracts metadata from text-based documents, creates the record within the Soutron databases, complete with a summary of the document.

Acquisitions & Subscription Management

Soutron Acquisitions has every facility that you want and need, create, amend, cancel and control receipt and budgeting in every way you need.

Simply cancel and un-receive orders and check-ins, fast screen performance and easy to learn and apply workflows.

Uniquely Soutron employs the same processes to record orders for physical or electronic materials, online subscriptions (virtual copies), books or serials all follow the same process.

API, Reporting, Importing & Exporting

Integrate with third party systems via Soutron’s RESTful XML API, or Search Widget, so users can start their search from your own website.

A comprehensive selection of management reports are available to help you monitor your library and the ability to import / export your collections and records too. XML, MARC21 & CSV Data exchange formats supported.
