Populi

A simple library built for small colleges.

With Populi Library, your patrons can find resources, place holds, and review and recommend their favorites. And you get an easy way to manage your collections, communicate with patrons, stay on top of loans, and track fines.

Catalog

Populi Library Search Zoom

Maintaining your catalog across multiple libraries has never been easier. Just enter an ISBN and Populi pulls the rest. Plus MARC importing, cover images, and manual control over all bibliographic fields.

Search

Populi Library Transits Zoom

Populi Library lets you find things quickly. The fast, forgiving search returns relevant results from all your libraries—even if you misspell something. Tools include basic search, advanced resource browsing for staff, an alphabetical subject directory, and links to external resources.

Patrons

Populi Library Patrons Zoom

All the patrons you want, for free. Active staff, faculty, and students get automatic patron privileges. Every patron gets a unique profile so you can track their loans, holds, fines, and reviews all in one place.

Circulation

Populi Library Checkout Zoom

Multiple library support makes transits and loans a breeze. Built-in reports tell you what’s gone where and who’s got what. Maintain multiple loan policies—by patron type, resource, collection, and more—each with unique fines and checkout limits.
