“I am already happy with the titles I wouldn’t normally see in my review lists. Gathering these titles would require extra work and time I rarely have. A+!”

— Jeremy Bloom

Lincoln Parish Library

“iCurate Core was a great help in rebuilding our collection. Instead of having to search for everything, we received a well-rounded list for every Dewey section. All we had to do was pick and plan an order! It made the whole process much less painful.”

— Janell Farris
