LMR ~ Automation for Synagogues and Center Libraries

The 2010 AJL survey reported the following results: 80.2% of synagogue libraries are automated, using a variety of systems
The most popular systems (in descending order) are:
ResourceMate (note that ResourceMate supports both Hebrew and English scripts)

A free (or close to free) system is called LibraryThing. Billed as "the world's largest book club" it can be adapted to the needs of a small library.

Surpass CL is an automation system "streamlined for churches, synagogues, and other places of worship."

A smaller number of synagogue libraries use the following systems:
OPALS (note that OPALS supports both Hebrew and English scripts)
InfoCentre from Sagebrush is used by a number of synagogue and center libraries.
Sagebrush is now owned by the Follett Corporation.
Follett Software Co. continues to provide support for current users of InfoCentre but it is no longer being sold.
