Why not try an open source ILS? All functionalities are there (you
will feel "at home"); or a more "personal" library management software
(not sure for the barcode reader)



NB: We use PMB-ILS (full web, php mysql, more close to a CMS regarding
to installation) ; I also made a try with Books (only for MacOSX,
not developed anymore)

> Good Morning All,
> I'm hoping someone out there has a recommendation or two for lightweight inventory software that can be used to keep track curricular materials (kits, lab equipment, etc.)  Open source (with a decent GUI is preferable) and/or proprietary options are fine.  Adding these items to our ILS is not optimal. Would like to be able to bar code materials, scan into inventory database, track checkouts, perform light searching of database, etc., but want something that the folks responsible for collection can manage easily.  Thanks for any suggestions.
