Library Technical Services: Aleph

An informative guide for library staff

Aleph ILS

FSCJ libraries use an integrated library system (ILS) software called Aleph. All of Florida’s public college and university libraries use Aleph and are able to share cataloging records with each institution. The colleges and univeristies have an array of automated tools that make it easier to manage library materials and streamline delivery of library services. Libraries use the Aleph software-based ILS for:

  • Materials acquisition and processing: ordering and processing books/items for addition to their collection.
  • Metadata and inventory control: cataloging new materials and entering that information for use by other libraries, managing bibliographic data and records ("metadata") associated with each item in their collection, and keeping track of their entire library collection (inventory).
  • Collection management: circulating books and other library materials, and using on-demand and system-generated statistical reports to manage the collection.
