FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION(S)

Below are a few of the frequently asked questions that we receive. If you have a question that has not been answered from the About, Components, of FAQs please contact us so that we can further answer those questions.

What is the difference between the Basic Student Log and the Advanced Student Log?

The Advanced Student Log allows for barcode scanning and ID capabilities with students sign in. The Basic Student Log just has first and last name inputs for students to type.

Can the Student Log be used on multiple computers?

Yes! You can turn a settings option on that allows the Students Logs to sync with each other.

What if we have a fire drill or emergency and need access to the Student Log?

The Student Log is mobile friendly so you can access it on your phone or tablet. There is also a print button for quick printing if you need to take a hard copy with you.

Can teachers and administrators access the Student Log?

Yes! There is a private viewing access portal that administrators and staff can view to verify student access at your library/media center.

If students put inappropriate information when signing in can I edit or remove that information?

Yes! There is an archival/management section that allows you to add/edit/delete information from the Student Log.

How do teachers access the Calendar remotely?

You have two options for teachers to access the Calendar.

  1. Public Access: You can embed or provide the link for the public which is a READ ONLY view.
  2. Private Access: You can provide teachers with a private link that will allow them to access the calendar and add/edit/remove their own events while seeing other teacher signups.

We have multiple schedules at our school. Can the Calendar accommodate our schedules?

Yes! You can create multiple schedule versions. You are also able to create a schedule/calendar layout where you can designate what type of day it might be (A or B day) right on the Calendar.

By creating the multiple schedule versions and layout the Calendar event form will automatically know which schedule version to use on a particular day when teachers fill out the sign up form.

We EXACTLY is the Out Log used for?

The Out Log is used for tracking students that leave the library but will be returning (i.e. Restroom, Guidance, Nurse, etc.).

Libraries/Media Centers that house Virtual High School students use this to know when students leave and where they are venturing.

No, you do not need this module with the Student Log for when students are leaving to go back to class or leave at the end of a period/block.

Can LibraryTrac be used in locations other than the library at our school?

Yes! We have schools that are using the Student Log and Calendar in locations such as nurse, guidance, and attendance offices.
