The Library Corporation (TLC) has debuted a program that gives its Library•Solution for Schools customers the ability to solve two important problems faced by many school districts: How to manage textbooks, and how to track school assets. TLC's Textbook Management and Asset Tracking is a web application that can manage the task of distributing and accounting for textbooks as well as assets such as calculators, computers, and even padlocks, the announcement states.

Textbook Management and Asset Tracking gives its users the ability to quickly and easily add new titles, update the conditions of school-owned items, and assign materials to students and faculty. It features a dashboard-style interface that displays material conditions, district-wide inventories, and statuses and locations of school textbooks and assets. The program can produce reports for an entire district or individual schools to show all items checked out to students at any given time.

TLC's Textbook Management and Asset Tracking will enable districts to comprehensively oversee materials, identify additional or limited inventories, and save time and money, according to the announcement.

Textbook Management and Asset Tracking is offered as an optional add-on for TLC's Library•Solution for Schools. The integrated library system includes the LS2 Circulation module, a web application that provides extensive circulation functionality and reporting to school libraries of any size.
