Enterprises Libraries are distributed at multiple locations. Using a client server
architecture it becomes difficult to share the resources of the all the Libraries
across the enterprise.
LIBeXTM multi-location is a web enabled and a server centric system. The main database
remains on the server and the staff members access the information across the libraries
across without loading any client.
Since this architecture helps in reducing the costs involved in making different setups with different servers at various locations, the total cost of ownership is reduced drastically.
However LIBeXTM can be configured to work with a single location library also.
