BiblioCommons recently released BiblioCMS, a complete solution for content and website management. In addition, BiblioCommons, offers a full suite of complementary services, such as; BiblioMobile, Summer Sites, BiblioDigital, a Fines module, Suggest for Purchase, and much more.

- Full featured discovery layer
- Seamlessly integrated ⁃ both with your ILS and your choice of third-party content enhancements
- Readily configured
- Continuously enhanced
- Easily maintained
The BiblioCore catalog is live with many of the top public libraries in North America. Just in California alone, Santa Clara County Library System, Peninsula Library System, Oceanside Library, and most recently San Francisco Public Library have joined the BiblioCommons shared platform. Additionally, New York Public Library, Brooklyn Public, Chicago Public, Seattle Public, King County Library System, and Multnomah County Library, and over 200 other public libraries worldwide have gone live since the company started just over 5 years ago.
Any Califa member library that subscribes to the BiblioCore catalog will receive two days of in-person, on-site staff training during implementation—a $5,000 value.
