Academic Libraries

Navigating a library automation system should not require a working knowledge of cryptic icons, confusing menus, and multiple windows scattered on the screen. Doesn’t your college or university library deserve better? TLC’s expansive list of user-requested features is carefully and purposefully presented to your staff and students in easy-to-use AND easy-to-learn interfaces.


  • Academic Reserves
  • Acquisitions with EDI and multiple sub fund capability
  • Easy access to e-books and other digital resources
  • Web-based automation with touchscreen-optimized interfaces
  • Automatic Authority Control and updating
  • Student Information System integration
  • Configurable security – important for student workers at the circulation desk
  • Single log-in powered by Active Directory™ integration

  • Interactive, dynamic bookshelf for your library’s titles
  • LS2 Preferences, a centralized interface to manage your location and system-level settings



TLC’s Academic Reserves functionality for LibrarySolution is a powerful tool for college and university libraries. Staff members at academic libraries use the LS2 Staff module to add, edit, and remove titles set aside for a particular course or set of courses, and students use the library’s LS2 PAC catalog to find and check out their designated course-related titles.


Academic Reserves includes more than a dozen user-selected criteria – Instructor, Course, Department, etc. – making your reserves filterable and discoverable. Items can be reserved for multiple courses, sections, and professors, and have multiple release dates. In-depth statistics allow libraries to gather extensive data on reserve titles. When the reserve period expires, items can be easily removed.

Whether you have a few course reserves or thousands, TLC’s Academic Reserves makes assigning, tracking, and un-assigning items simpler than ever. The feature is available at no extra charge to LibrarySolution users who utilize LS2 Staff and LS2 PAC.
