Integrated library solution & knowledge management platform

About Lucidea Integrated Library Systems

Lucidea Integrated Library Systems (including SydneyEnterprise and GeniePlus) is an integrated library solution (ILS) with automated knowledge management features for cataloging, circulation and online search.

SydneyEnterprise is Lucidea's unified library automation and knowledge management platform, designed with the functional flexibility to suit specialist librarians across commercial, private, public and nonprofit facilities. Deployed within the cloud, the system is Single Sign On compatible to provide convenient anytime and anywhere access within the desktop or mobile browser. Powered by LucideaCore technology at it's heart, SydneyEnterprise comprises modules including the views and portal designer for customizing the UI workflows for both staff and patron access, along with the KM Builder. The latter supports the extensive cataloguing of library and knowledge assets such as books, images, eJournals, videos and more. Librarians can richly record items and attach multiple files while remaining fully searchable, along with tools for importing MARC records directly.

These comprehensive collection and catalog management features are joined by an enriched querying experience for crucially assisting all users in finding the information they need. Faceted search options, smart filtering, alerting and one-touch navigation all combine to form a single authoritative source, fully integrated with internal and external repositories.

Key benefits of Lucidea Integrated Library Systems

  • Lucidea's ILS solutions are best suited to specialist libraries, from smaller agile departments to larger outlets demanding potentially extensive collections cataloging with additional knowledge management capabilities.
  • Cataloguing module aids the recording of assets with customizable templates, auto-validating fields and the ability to attach fully searchable files, while batch processing is made possible thanks to local or Z39.50 MARC file imports.
  • Circulation module supports full, express and end user modes for barcode supported check in/out processing, running searches etc, locating overdue materials and running associated collection management reports.
  • Acquisitions module supports workflow and costing planning, while a dedicated Serials module enables libraries to setup subscription services, generate claim letters and more.
  • Librarian administrators can set a wealth of universal access options via an Administration module, setting security permissions that give only granted users the right to view certain information or access specific functions.

    It has what you need

    Reviewed on 2018/10/13

    Pros

    It has many features and is multi-functional. I was able to get the hang of it pretty easily with support from my supervisor, but if you require additional help, they have live representatives willing to help 24/7.

    Cons

    I don't really have a complaint, considering my limited experience with the software.

    Continued development along the lines of where I'd like to go with sharing our data; having the access to flexible data design and redefinition and display. Getting at least to the basics of that with relatively complete ease.

    Pros

    Facilitates customer driven design; flexibility, avoids rigid constraints of many other systems; potential for integrating data in diverse formats into system; excellent customer service and support.

    Cons

    The con is really the constraints on my own time; I look forward enriching our content and developing specialized access routines for our staff.

    We have easily made changes to the library catalog and OPAC with the changes happening in the firm. It's easy to train new employees and the Sydney customer support is always great.

    Pros

    The flexibility and ease of making custom databases and views. I have been using Sydney since 2007 and it keeps getting better. They listen to their users. They also have excellent customer service.

    Cons

    The manuals could be a bit more detailed, but the tutorials are great for learning specific modules.

    I have been working with Lucidea for about four years. In that time, customer service has consistently been highly responsive to my needs. Sydney Enterprise is stable, flexible and easy to use. I have access to all the modules but only those that make sense for my work are utilized. The software allows me to create custom metadata fields which make searching easier for my users. I have a great number of full text attachments which are quickly searchable because they are indexed. Overall, I am pleased with the software's performance.

    These comments are based on my own opinion and not that of my company.
