Powerful Public Library Management Software – For libraries with small to large circulation
The VERSO Integrated Library System is designed for library systems of all sizes and configurations, ranging from small, part-time, one-building libraries to multi-branch city or county systems, to multi-library regional and statewide consortia.

VERSO is part of Auto-Graphics’ library management platform, an integrated family of products, enabling libraries to manage, search, and share their resources. Serving over 6,000 library customers, the library management platform delivers proven, standards-based library automation solutions.

VERSO is built on a modular structure, allowing libraries to pick and pay for only the services they need to manage their libraries best. Rather than forcing libraries to fit into rigid system requirements, VERSO can be configured to meet every library’s unique needs. VERSO modules include:

VERSO ILS supports libraries and consortia of all sizes and structures.
