WHAT DO LIBRARIANS/MEDIA SPECIALISTS SAY
reviews from great librarians/media specialists
The software is very reliable and user friendly. It is especially useful to identify names of students in the library at any given time, especially during an emergency situation.
I am working diligently on documenting usage of my library in order to share that information with my building and district administrators, because they have no concept of how busy my library is daily. I couldn't do it easily without this program. I have presented several sessions at state conferences on using social media and statistics to convey that info to stakeholders
I love Library Trac! Kids love it so they actually sign in every time they visit the library. They love showing their parents how to sign into the computer, after school!
Love being able to track students without all the paper waste! Works great if I can get students to remember to sign in and out.
We have very much enjoyed using LibraryTrac. Teachers love being able to check to see if a student has signed in to the library and when they sign out. It has helped us become more efficient in tracking the use of the library and holding students accountable.
I love using it. My AP told me I would have to do duty before and after school but when I printed out and showed him my statistics from LibraryTrac, he rescinded that edict.
The kids loved it. They signed in with complete information; whereas, when we did it on paper, I was lucky to get a last name.

In an age where librarians must offer hard evidence that their libraries’ physical spaces are being utilized in multiple ways by many students, this tool makes that possible. We can track our busiest times as well as the most popular reasons for individual visits to our library. We love LibraryTrac!!!
I have only used Library trac since April when we opened a new building. The students picked up the system quick and are now in the habit of logging in as soon as they enter the library. I am happy with the system and prefer the simple and easy to use format.
The librarians are really amazed at how much activity there is in the libraries now that they have a way to record it. They are saying that they knew they were busy but just didn’t realize HOW busy.
Scott Allen and LibraryTrac continue to be one of the best of the databases we purchase for our school district. Scott continues to provide excellent service, usually responding to questions in less than an hour. He is very amiable about improvements suggested by our librarians and generally tries his best to incorporate our requests! Customer service is clearly a huge part of the business plan for LibraryTrac!
I really enjoy using LibraryTrac. It is easy to use and set-up and provides rich real-time data. I have recommended it to other librarians in different districts already who need a better tracking mechanism.
