Athenaeum Light is a simple yet powerful library management tool for schools, small and medium sized businesses, church groups and other organisations. Athenaeum has been available since 1996 and is a mature and well developed solution.
For 2014, Athenaeum Light has been re-engineered into a compact, single file solution with a new interface. It works with FileMaker Pro 12 or FileMaker Pro 13 and can be networked with FileMaker Server 12 or 13. It also runs with FileMaker Go 13 on your iPad and also supports FileMaker Inc.'s "Web Direct" on FileMaker Server 13.
There are also some new, fun things with QR Codes, automation with the Open Library.
As well, a rewritten comprehensive manual will get you going through all sections of the program. The passwords for Athenaeum Light are included at the start of the manual (that's a hint!).
You can download the following empty 30 day trial versions of Athenaeum Light from the Athenaeum Light Downloads page
Athenaeum Light contains features for FileMaker Go 13. It does not support version 12.
Go to the Athenaeum Light downloads page and grab a demo version with dummy data as well as the new manual.
The Athenaeum Light 2014 templates are USD50 and do not include FileMaker Pro nor FileMaker Server.
That fee is a single charge per library per site. That means if you have a school with one library, you pay a single fee regardless of the number of students. If you have offices distributed in 5 cities with 5 libraries, you have 5 fees. If you have a school district, then the fee is per school library, not per district.
