Great Option for Small Schools at a terrific price

I love that we have the ability to not only automate our library but can also run our textbook management and electronics management through the Mandarin system. As a small private school, our budget is limited and anything that helps us control inventory and save money in the long-run is a worthwhile investment.

Drawbacks:

My only complaint is that it is sometimes difficult to find an item on Record Fetch. The system is not very forgiving with typos and not all ISBNs... Read more

Summary:

We have saved money by knowing what is in our inventory. In the past, we have bought duplicate copies simply out of poor inventory control. Manda... Read more

We were sold something other than what we received.

Benefits:

Visually it was better looking than our previous system.

Drawbacks:

It didn't do almost everything we were promised it could do.

Summary:

When we decided to purchase this software we had very specific needs. We were told everything we wanted to do was already in the system or that the... Read more

Mandarin is a server based software. This makes it cheap. With one license, numerous client computers access the application. Therefore, patrons access the library collection through the client computers. I have noticed that members of Technical Service Department of the library speed up work all thanks to client-server functionality on Mandarin. Patrons are able to access the library collection remotely online. In the wake of COVID-19, the library continued offering services despite the staff and patrons remaining in their homes. Cataloguing staff now have less work load as Mandarin allows them to perform copy cataloguing. Pre-recorded information of the resource is retrieved using record Fetch. Mandarin offers patrons with a good interface which helps them to search the contents of the library using topics, words or terms. More still, the advanced search features help patrons to filter searching into narrow specific terms. Mandarin provides patrons with links to e- books, audio books and other digital resources, making the library to become a digital one. Mandarin improves inventory control in the library system. Records pertaining to accessions list, books on order and other files are well managed.

Drawbacks:

Much as the software is efficient, less developed communities with poor internet infrastucture may find the software irritating due to internet con... Read more

Summary:

Mandarin has helped patrons to access the contents of the library collection in the comfort of their homes. Information is simply a click away.
