The Altarama RefTracker Request Management System for Libraries has
been purpose built to improve service and efficiency for libraries
Key features and benefits:
● a single interface that links all the different ways you receive
and deliver reference services
● a comprehensive ask-a-librarian interface for clients who access
your library via your web pages
● acceptance of all types of requests e.g. reference, local
history, new book, ILL and suggestions
● service options include remote hosting by Altarama or local
hosting by the licensed institution
● response process efficiencies through tools, text and workflows
specific to the library
● controls to avoid the duplication of research work
● system management to ensure timely responses
● intelligent allocation of questions to staff
● a knowledge database of reusable answers and their search
strategies, locally developed and controlled
● rich statistics
RefTracker continually leads the way in provision of access to new and
exciting information and tools available on the Internet and the
efficiencies that can be gained by integrating them into an environment
specifically designed for the reference function of libraries.
