Our Solutions

More than just a library management system provider, Civica offers a wide range of value-added solutions.

Put Civica on Your Shelves

What sets Civica apart from other library vendors is our holistic approach to library service management.  With a large staff of professional senior librarians, running a library is second nature at Civica since we’ve been running more than 300 libraries for nearly a decade. Our people and professional integrity is backed up with an established infrastructure that spans library systems, collections, library staffing and library programmes.

A Civica Managed Library includes:

  • Library consultancy for renovation and design
  • Library staffing and administration
  • Collection services
  • Library technologies
  • Programmes and education

Library consultancy for renovation and design

The Civica vision for libraries is that of an engaging physical and virtual environment with a space for learning, a space for sharing, a space for knowledge, a space for leisure and a space for community and culture. With professional staff with experience in library design and renovation projects, Civica provides professionaladvice on library layout, equipment and infrastructure based on individual requirements and needs.

Library staffing and administration

With many years of experience in library staffing recruitment, Civica provides library staff from qualified librarians to para-professionals to library assistants and shelvers.  We understand the culture, the processes and the relationships to be able to provide the right support to get the best outcome for the customer and the candidate. Civica is an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) with the Workforce Development Authority (WDA) of Singapore delivering accredited library operation skills courses. Not relying on library operational training alone, we also regularly conduct a broad range of “soft skills” training to supplement their library skills.

Collection services

Civica’s collection service encompasses collection development and management to deliver ‘shelf-ready’ library resources in a timely manner. In a Civica Managed Library we monitor our collections using the various tools available to ensure that the library has the latest, most popular and relevant titles.

Library technologies

Spydus is a fully automated information management solution for academic, government, public and corporate libraries. It automates the full range of library functions including the necessary back end functions such as cataloguing, acquisitions, circulation and reporting, but also provides a fully unified approach to library  technology which is essential for all librarians looking to the future. In a Civica Managed Library we take care of  all your software needs.

Programmes and education

Civica’s suite of programmes include activity based programmes, competitions, workshops and library events that are exciting, hands-on and  age appropriate.   Civica will ensure that the library is well used and vibrant by organising library and literacy programmes as part of the Complete Managed Library package.
