The core of a reading list management system that has been developed for use at Loughborough University in England is now available for use by other sites. The package is mostly web based (with a few back end scripts that can be run from the command line or cron) and allows academics and departmental support staff to maintain their own reading lists via their web browsers. Librarians and library assistants also have access to additional web based management and statistical tools to help them make best use of the reading lists (for example ensuring that adequate books are held in the short loan/course reserve collection).
Version 7 of LORLS is available at https://lorls.lboro.ac.uk/LUMPDist.
