    Eclipse.Net

    It doesn't meet the free or cheap criteria though.

    We're currently using Alice(seriously dated) but are seriously considering Juniorlib.net/Eclipse.net

    Others of note are Oliver and Accessit

    Junior Librarian (non- .NET). Not free or even cheap and possibly they don't sell it any more - at least I couldn't spot it last time I was logged into their site.

    Moved from Alice to Eclipse.Net in the summer. Not cheap but does what it says on the tin and the LRC staff appear to be happy with it now they have worked out the reporting modules. Only involvement I have with it is if the Active Directory sync module gets stuck (happened twice in 9 months thus far...)

    JunLib.net. As others have said, not free or cheap. I'm not aware of any free / cheap solutions that are any good.

    Moved recently from Alice to Eclipse.net. Our Librarians are very happy so far. Good library software doesn't come cheap unfortunately.

    Two that I have seen in the past are Heritage (was DOS based when I saw it) and there is OpenGalaxy from Axiell, lots of LA use this in their libraries.
