Personally, I find it very helpful as I can clearly read students' names as well as which faculty or staff member sent them to the Media Center. This is a great help to someone new to a school with over 1,100 students and a large number of faculty . There are additional advantages as well.
Teachers can log in from their classrooms to make sure students have arrived promptly. If used with fidelity, it can be an accurate account of which students are in the library at any given time which is crucial during an emergency drill. In addition it yields usage data; providing us with a visual representation of when the library is used the most and for what purpose. This allows us to design programs that best met the needs of the FHS community.
There are several additional features offered by LibraryTrac software. We are also experimenting with resource scheduling: device carts, computer labs, library spaces, etc. Which leads me to another convenient aspect of this software; the ability to purchase features a-la-cart, only purchasing what is really needed. Decisions on future implementation of LibraryTrac software will be made at the end of this school year.
Always working to improve our services. #FHSnext
