The Digital DEWEY Information Retrieval System, or ddIRS, is an easy to use, intuitive software solution for searching for books. It is a viable alternative to the archaic and cumbersome card catalog system. With the Digital DEWEY, there’s no need to deal with the hassles of conventional card catalog systems; no index cards to keep track of, no confusing syntax or connotation, no risk of inaccurate information.
The ddIRS features state-of-the-art technology, stability and reliability, and a user-friendly interface. The ddIRS is web-based, offering access from home or office, and is available for use by those on the go as long as an internet connection is available.
The Digital DEWEY Information Retrieval System is much more than just a simple card catalog system. It offers up-to-date information on books; author and title information, their physical location, and whether the book is available, checked out, or on hold.
The ddIRS also encompasses several essential library functions. Aside from just searching for books, patrons can also check out books, place them on hold, and check their account status. Library administrators can also add and remove books from the database and make other changes. All of this functionality is offered from a single, easy to use system.
