Advanced business features

The application offers business features which respond fully to the current needs of contemporary establishments.
A workflow is at the heart of the process, thus guaranteeing speed and efficiency. All the actions carried out by different users are gathered in a single database.


The software offers the following features :

Acquisition, orders, cataloguing and copy
SKINlibris simplifies acquisition processes, order management, cataloguing, adding copies, and offers rich documentary contents. During an acquisition, you can define the situation and the state of the acquisition (in preparation, pending reception, finalized), pre-catalog bibliographic descriptions manually or by  UNIMARC import, create copies in batches, and  automatically assign barcodes to the new documents.

Magazine management, inventory, cataloguing of periodicals, subscription management
SKINlibris has periodical management functions which allow you to describe periodical titles, to manage and renew subscriptions, to manage the arrival of new issues, and to program the inventory of periodicals based on their frequency. SKINlibris offers also the possibility to catalog articles and link media to them (scans, PDF files…).

Movements, loans and borrowing, exhibitions, restoration
SKINlibris enables you to organize, archive, control the presence of items within establishments, make condition reports, and proceed to a restoration if necessary. The functions related to the movement of each item are listed in the application and allow users to follow, plan and document the different items' movements, which can be tracked by a barcode or RFID chip. You will be informed in real time of all matters concerning the movements of items: documents on loan, documents on reference, and documents on exhibit. In addition, the software integrates a function for reserving documents.

Administrative rights
SKINlibris, as all SKINsoft applications, integrates advanced features for rights management, which enables you to easily configure user profiles adapted to each job.

Imports, exports and printings, interoperability
SKINlibris has numerous functions for exchange and sharing specific to SKINsoft applications. Open and interoperable, SKINlibris can communicate with third-party applications but also online catalogs (BnF, Sudoc…). The print function offered in our application suite enables you to easily create different email templates, to document the state of collections, and to catalog descriptions. In addition, SKINlibris offers the possibility to share data with S-Museum, S-Collection, S-Archeo and S-Foundation, which allows you to link library documents with collection items, materials, assembly items, and items from archaeological excavations.

Controlled vocabulary, search, archiving
In addition to controlled vocabulary management functions integrated in SKINsoft solutions, SKINlibris integrates vocabulary specific to library standards (UNIMARC, lists of coded values, classification), which facilitates the standardization of your data and optimizes searches in documentary collections. All the procedures are archived and the users can easily configure requests for the generation of statistics on consultations, acquisitions, and loans.
