Our library management software and services trace their history back to the 1960s and the pioneering BCLMP and Talis Alto. Today, as Library Management Cloud, with over 50 years' partnership with our public and academic library customers, the platform continues to serve the needs of librarians and their patrons through ever changing times.
With over 100 sites across the UK, ESS’s Soprano LMS is essential for helping us to understand the needs of the local population and fine tune our services to meet them. We simply couldn’t operate without it.
