About Softlink

Softlink has been exclusively dedicated to the development and support of advanced knowledge, content and library management solutions for more than 25 years. With solutions proven to optimise library operations and successfully contribute to the goals of libraries across the globe, Softlink is currently working with more than 10,000 libraries across 108 nations and all library sectors.

Softlink provides both Oliver and Scout into the Educational sector, both offer full integration with Accelerated Reader. As soon as the module is integrated into your system, you do not need to do a thing. All your current resources that have an Accelerated Reader quiz will be automatically populated, indicating their level of difficulty and number of points that will be scored.


Web based, scalable and flexible – Oliver is the web-based library management system that takes the best features of Web 2.0 technology and presents it to students, library staff and teachers in an intuitive way, allowing them to research and access on-line resources 24/7. Oliver is widely used by primary, secondary and 6th form colleges. Built to facilitate integration with all information sources and services commonly used across a school campus, Oliver makes the school library central to a dynamic learning environment.

With many easy to use administration features and allowing an almost unlimited degree of personalisation, Oliver promotes engagement with your students, whilst providing reporting systems that enables you to prove your worth to your School.


Scout is Softlink’s new Primary focused resource management system. It has been custom designed for Primary Schools and is a fully hosted (or cloud-based) system. In an environment where schools are having to make increasingly tough choices around where to invest and where to reduce spend on learning resources; where IT resource is limited and yet you are required to juggle a wide variety of physical and digital resources, Scout will ensure schools are managing and using all of their resources efficiently and to their maximum effect.

It is comprehensive and yet easily managed, and as it is delivered via the cloud can be accessed from anywhere. This means that schools are empowered with the knowledge that resources are being managed efficiently, targeted at specific learning outcomes and delivering maximum value for money helping to eliminate needless spend on under-used learning resources.
