|Chancery Software, Ltd. has announced the release of an upgraded version
of its library information system, Library Pro 2.2, to all customers on
applicable support programs. The enhanced version integrates with Win School
and Mac School, Chancery's school-based student management solutions.
According to the company, schools that are also Win School or Mac School
customers will realize numerous benefits while using Library Pro 2.2, including
enhanced data accuracy and reduced data-entry time. Library Pro 2.2 users
will be able to customize the application to synchronize—either on demand
or through scheduled updates—with the school's Win School or Mac School
databases. Student and staff demographic information will be updated every
time the data is synchronized.
"This is an exciting release for Chancery. The integration between the
student management system and the library system significantly reduces
the amount of time media specialists spend managing student data," said
Cheryl Oke, Chancery's library product specialist. "Media specialists will
have more time to do the work they are trained for: to work with teachers
on cooperative program planning and to assist them in finding appropriate
materials in all formats. And they will have more time to help acquaint
students with the resources that they need to become knowledge workers
and lifelong learners."
"The release of Library Pro 2.2 is yet another example of Chancery's
ability to help schools adopt new technologies without compromising usability,
functionality, or scalability," said Rick Moignard, Chancery's CEO. "Our
Library Pro 2.2 and student information system solutions continue to provide
unparalleled timely, accurate, and complete information to administrators,
teachers, students, and parents."
According to the announcement, Win School and Mac School are North America's
top-selling K-12 student information systems for Windows and Macintosh.
These robust, proven systems provide comprehensive and user-friendly capabilities
for managing and using student information in schools.
