The library is integral to learning

We understand how important it is to provide your students with an engaging library platform that encourages a life-long love of reading and discovery.

Engaging Web App

We designed the Accessit Web App with your users in mind. With an attractive interface and an interactive user experience, your students will love engaging with the online library catalogue, as well as managing their own library experience. Best of all, they only need one login to reach everything.

Unleash the power of One Search

It’s never been more important to equip your students to be information and tech savvy learners; and to seek out relevant, credible content. The popular Accessit One Search enables your users to search across multiple online content providers simultaneously and seamlessly, reaching far more curated, scholarly material with a single search.

Inclusive Searching

Searching with Accessit is varied and inclusive. Accessit handles misspellings, truncations, and phonetic spelling, ensuring all your students find the resources they need. Since the majority of people process visual images quickly, the Accessit Visual Search feature allows learners to absorb content more easily. Visual Search is configurable and can be set up for subject areas, year levels, genres and more.

“After years of using uninspiring library platforms, I LOVE the way the Accessit dashboard looks and functions! Being able to customize our 2 campuses with news articles, trending titles, One Search and more, engages all of our students from K through 12. And it’s all available anyTIME and anyWHERE with the click of a mouse or app!”

Students need school libraries.


Today the library is more important than it even has been. Students need an accessible, easy to use library system that grows and evolves with a changing learning environment.

    Give your students anywhere, anytime library access, from their own devices

    The Accessit Web App has a ‘drag and drop’ interface that is attractive and engaging, encouraging students of any age to explore and interact with the catalogue. Students can search the library catalogue from anywhere on any device – giving them 24/7 library access. The Accessit Library phone app is available for on-the-go access – students can track their current loans and overdues straight away as well as search the library catalogue.

    Reducing library and research anxiety

    One of the biggest issues faced by librarians today is how to make the process of finding information easier for our students by providing relevant, reliable resources to support their studies. Accessit’s One Search does away with the need for Google and Wikipedia based research. Students only need to login to Accessit once and they can extend their search beyond the library, reaching your online or subscription-based providers. This supports the students in their research, offering them curated results, so they don’t have to sort through volumes of content to find valid material.

    Library staff can also create curated Reading Lists to help guide students. These lists can be linked to their online classroom space, bringing the library into the classroom, and reducing research and library anxiety.

    Driving their own library experience

    Accessit Library is designed to be as intuitive and engaging as possible. Students can easily reserve and renew items, read and write book reviews, view citations, and much more. They can create, save and share lists, encouraging book recommendations, and keeping the reading dialogue alive in the classroom and at home.

    Students get their own unique dashboard, where they can view and manage their loans, reserves and their overdues.

    ‘My Interests’ makes book promotion easy by allowing your borrowers to choose their favourite authors, subjects or tags. Accessit then automatically alerts them when something new is added to the library, matching an area they’ve chosen.

    Syndetics Unbound Integration

    Accessit integrates with Proquest’s Syndetics Unbound adding enriched material to the items in your collection. Students can check out ‘You may also like’ recommendations, more works by the author, further author information, lexile information and book reviews.
